"Blue Pond & First Snow, Hokkaido"
Photo: Kent Shiraishi
Biei in Hokkaido,Japan.
You can’t miss the wonderful scenery of “Hokkaido”.
All are nature’s tints.
The “blue pond” of the famous tourist resort in Biei, Hokkaido, Japan is a place where many tourists gather in spring, summer, and autumn. However, since this pond freezes in winter, nobody is there during that period. This photograph was taken during the first snow of the season as it fell over the blue pond.
This photograph was chosen as "The Runners-Up In The National Geographic Photo Contest 2011."
I’m a Hokkaido’s Samurai Photographer.
I would like to make “Hokkaido” into a more famous tourist resort in the world.
