Quiet Evening


A lovely sunset over the city.

Is it just me or does that high-rise building on the left look like it's going to fall over any minute? Don't know about you but I'm ready to relax again. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


Enjoy looking at more beautiful skies all around the world here.

  1. What a contrast with your last pictures, all colors and movement!
    I like this one even more, the fading pastel colors are so delicate and peaceful...

  3. Leaning Tower of Shinjuku...? Such very pleasant hues of pastel in this sunset. I hope you were sitting on a balcony with a glass of wine (or whatever is your choice of liquid) enjoying this sky and de-stressing from your work week.

  6. If you look closely at the top of that building you can see a famous astronomer doing an experiment.

  11. Love the purple hues. It's not just you, it is leaning or it's a trick of the eye.

  12. That building isn't falling over, it's trying to get as close to that fabulous sunset as it can!

  13. Blue is always beautiful and give us summer feeling, thank you!

    Greetings from East Finland,where I will see every day airplanes flying to Japan. I have been in Shinjuku many years ago in a hotel, where I saw over Tokyo. I was with my husband in his conference, where the sea biologist brother of your Emperor were. I even spoke with his wife, who was asking from me, where I am coming from and something else a little :)
    I loved those days there. We visited also Kyoto and Hara.
    Your Emperor with his wife visited also Finland before he was Emperor.
    We were cruising with them at the lake Saimaa. It was WWF`s happening. The world is small nowadays, isn`t it :)
    Nice weekend to you!

  18. so this is a definite delayed post. haha.
    but the sky's still is pretty as can be. really love the hues.
    maybe it's the way it's been built like the leaning tower of Tokyo or the way you shot it became distorted. ^0^

  19. Hi everyone! Thank you so much for the comments!

    I went back to check and the building was actually NOT leaning at all. Can't figure out why it turned out this way :D

  20. Kaori, a wide angle will cause distortion, like leaning buildings. It can be corrected in Photoshop, but in this gorgeous shot it's not worth the trouble. http://tv.adobe.com/watch/photoshop-with-matt/removing-distortion-from-wideangle-photos/
