    The monkeys look amazing with their fur covered in lumps of snow. Very beautiful photo, even though they must be really cold.
    I visited Jigokudani in March, so even less snow than in your earlier photos.
    To answer your question - I will maybe stop in Japan for a day or two on the way to Taiwan. But it's still a long time, I think February 2018.

    Hi Francois
    Well captured, I like the minimalist composition with the moon in the big sky. Beautiful colours and light.

    Hi Wolfgang
    The old fortress looks great as a foreground with much flatter landscape on the horizon. Good idea to include the yurts in the middle distance to create a strong sense of place.

    It really does look like an enormous create drinking from the ocean!
    Great use of ND filter which turned the waves into mist and created unforgettable atmosphere which this place must have when you are there.

    Hi Will
    Tempus fugit, and yet it seems to have stopped in this wonderfully timeless image. The grain in the sky makes me miss film photography but everything else is as it would have been last summer in Greece: the sun, the colours of the boat and sky, kids playing...

    It looks hot, you managed to capture the temperature in a 2D photo. It's not just the light but first of all the people included in the image. It's apparent from the way they dress and behave (the woman raising the bottle of water to drink).
    I like the composition, you made the most of the fascinating architecture and the patterns on the pavement.

    Hi Gyorgy
    Great series! It's not new and fresh snow but you can clearly see how much of the white stuff had fallen on Miskolc.
    Snow-covered benches, sleighs, snow ploughs... I'm beginning to hate people who post photos of snow. ;-)
    I haven't seen any since my short trip to Finland in early December. I'm going to Poland this Friday and have already seen the forecast for the weekend - Big Thaw. That's my luck. :-(

    Great photo, well-observed, intriguing and with a sense of mystery. Perfectly composed to include the tall windows above the fountains it was also very well timed to created powerful silhouettes of the people in the foreground.

    Hi Daniel
    A minimalist and creative image, yet it beautifully shows winter in its full glory. The negative space provided by the fog divides the photo in two parts: the valley and the mountains, to conveniently illustrate the difference in weather conditions you are talking about in your note.
    I'm adding this image to my favs... full of envy as always when I see lovely photos of snow.

    Magnificent landscape in its own right, yet further enhanced by the snow. The diagonal of the river lined by the the frost-covered trees makes for a dynamic composition and the light touching the peaks is fantastic.

    Just the minimalist photo of the lit up train travelling through the bluish void would have been wonderful. But the silhouette of the walking person makes it unique.
    One for my favourites!

    You are right, the WS photo shows the way most men dress these days in the only Indian city I have visited - Delhi (trousers of some sort rather than dhoti). A lot of women still dress in a traditional fashion though. Is it because women are more conservative or is it that they are expected to stick to the tradition by their conservative husbands and fathers? Somehow I suspect it's the former... Whatever the reasons, they do look gorgeous.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your new series.
    This was taken around the time when I took my first b&w shots... :-)

    Hi Gert
    I know what you mean, the WS photo is more of a street shot but then I would also probably select this one as the main upload because it's more unusual without losing the "nothing special" quality as it is an perfect example of everyday life scene (or so I imagine).
    Great choice of dramatis personae at the time of shooting too. I like the juxtaposition between the two elegant ladies and the man on the left if the frame.
    In spite of the apparent simplicity of the scene (compared to the WS with many people and a lot happening), there are many delightful details to look at, from the architecture, through the fruit stall merchandise to the colourful reflections in the puddles.

    An impressive creative outcome in a situation where most people would try to produce only record shots. Masterful use of contrast resulted in this near-minimalist image. Congratulations, also, on the choice of medium.
    This would look great on a gallery wall.

    Hi Iain
    What a fantastic, otherworldly landscape! Good crop (neve mind the foot) that not only kept the group of tourists out but also made it look almost abstract, it could be anything from a modern sculpture to a landfill site. I was pleased to read in your note it's a natural phenomenon.
    The colours, the soldiers pose and the expression on his face all beautifully captured.
    Definitely one for my travel wish list theme.

    This is exactly what I witnessed during my stay at Inle, about 6 months before yours. I bet these are the same "actor-fishermen" I took photos of. They even had some dead fish to use a props to pose with should the tourists wish so. I got invited into one of their boats and spent quite a productive half an hour photographing acrobatic skills that had nothing to do with fishing...
    Great shot with lovely colours in the background and the tourists with cameras skillfully included in the foreground.

    Hi Peter
    Great viewpoint to show this profusion of tall buildings and brilliant crop to make it look so impressive and at the same time almost abstract. Perfect weather for such a shot, the light and colours are wonderful and the buildings seem to be disappearing in to the mist.
