Award Winner | Photo of the Day | June 13, 2011
Michinoku is a natural park in the Tohoku region of Japan, the tulips I captured here are just a minimal part of the hundreds of thousands of flowers you can enjoy during the spring season in Japan, a place you can´t miss if you visit north east Japan.

Photographer:Jose Manuel Renteria Cobos (Osaka, Japan)
Jose Renteria born in Veracruz in december 17th 1973, raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, and currently living in Japan. He is a professional airline pilot and photography is his second professional priority, He has a professional photography Diploma and his is an everyday learner, aviation photography is his favorite topic followed by action, street, and landscape, except studio and multi flash photo. He founded in Japan that it is a very photogenic country (if not the most) He goes to every airport available to shoot aviation, travel to places to capture natute and colors, walk the streets in the night to capture the city lights and he always has a camera in my bag. He started photography in 2000 with a Canon rebel SLR but my real start was when I got his first DSLR, a PENTAX K10D, this camera changed his life. He is still a Pentax user and he will always be. Photography is not a business to him, it´s a way to play with time and space, people and things, it´s his escape from daily routine and an addiction with no harm. He always has goals and my next one is to start mastering portratit and strobist technique.
