11th February 2011.

I think when many people think of the stereotypical Japanese landscape, it includes either cherry blossoms, autumn leaves, or snow. For better or worse however, snow is very rare in Osaka. In fact, this is the first time in three years that there has been this much snow and still it only lasted for a matter of hours before melting.

This morning I had a meeting at 12pm and slept in until 10.30am but as soon as I saw the snow out the window I grabbed my camera and headed out.

Another photo I took last spring:

Beautiful architecture and winter landscape, what more can a person ask for? I love the winter in all its cold, icy slush filled glory and winter trees are gorgeous. I'd offer something more substantial but photography is not my forté.
