It's Amazing what a bit of Snow Can Do
As I've noted before it's not often that we get an accumulation of snow in the lower lying parts of Kyoto city and surrounding suburbs. When we do get an accumulation it seems to quiet down the place and if the snow comes just before sunrise the results can be very beautiful. This is a photo of a wall of a traditional Kyoto suburban house. The sculptured plants along the wall are azaleas.
This photo was taken back in the winter of 2010-2011 which was the coldest and longest winter we had here. In the next few days there is some cold weather and snow forecasted, so hopefully we might get an accumulation again. If I get a good shot I'll post it up to this blog.
This photo was captured with a Nikon D700 camera and an AF Nikkor 35f/2D lens. This photo is as it came out of the camera, no post processing has been done on this image.
