Picture of the Day: Whiskey on the Rocks

Whisky on the Rocks of Fuji


In this creative capture by The Town Sheriff on Flickr we see a fresh take on the term, whiskey on the rocks. The whiskey? Johnnie Walker Black. As the Sheriff explains:

“This shot was an idea I had in my head for about a year; it all started when I saw this Fuji-glass in a bar. I tracked one down for myself (turns out it was a packaged gift with certain bottles of Suntory whisky) and took it with me this summer when I traveled down to Lake Kawaguchi at the foot of Mt. Fuji. I walked around the town for a couple of hours until I found a nice setting with a lot of red.
This photo was achieved by setting my camera to a high-speed continuous shutter setting, focusing on the foreground for one shot, auto-focusing on the background for the second, and then having the camera auto-focus and shoot my hand holding the cup in front of the lens. I merged the three photos together using a couple different programs and then used Aperture to balance the colors of the photo out (the sunlight on the glass was way to distracting).” – Source
