Japan Matsumoto Castle Night

Since my hostel was so close to Matsumoto Castle I decided to pay it a visit at night and see if I could get any decent photos. The castle’s main tower is illuminated by spotlights at night and its color pattern works surprisingly well with a black sky. I walked back and forth along the moat outside the tower, taking photos from different angles. At one point a groups of swans entered the moat and I tried to grab a shot of one of them swimming past the tower. After about half an hour the cold nighttime temperatures starting getting to me and I went back to the hostel to warm up. The next morning I’d return to Matsumoto Castle for a proper tour and photos from that visit will be coming next week.
