This photograph is taken in the city of Echizen-Ōno in Fukui Prefecture in February of three years ago.
Physiographically, this is a basin and becomes a heavy snowfall area in winter. I got down from the station, and was walking along the alley in the city, I met with the spectacle which is shoveling away the snow from the rooftop in the private house. Snow was piling up on the roof deeply. The person in character with the grandfather of this house and two small girls in character with two grandchildren were reaching on the roof. The grandfather had taken down the snow lying with the shovel hard in order to remove snowy pressure. By its side, two girls were playing with snow happily. Somehow, it was an agreeable spectacle. They are serious since people who live in the snowy region have to do snow removal from the rooftop of a house, and snow removal of a road in a daily life.

This is a beautiful and delightful photo. This reminds me of winters long ago when I was a child and lived in the countryside. The children and their grandfather bring colours and life to the photo. It is perfectly exposed and has a great clarity and very good contrasts.

What a pile of snow to shovel, Mikio.
Childern in colorful heavy coats in great contrast to the white frozen surrounding, while the older man try to make his way over.
Fine taken the moment. Good clarity.

Bright red and blue look very pleasant in white snow. We can see the determination of the grandfather and the jollity of the children. A great photo, TFS!

That's bitter cold snow-laden capture, vividness of colours and detail is extremely outstanding! I can almost hear the crunch of snow underfoot with all the important elements are neatly placed with grandpa leads by example! This is the only way I love to see and admire snow, in one of your beautifully composed and captured images! Congrats

Great winter snapshot. I'm sure the children enjoy the snow, may be the working man less. Nice capture from lower angle viewpoint. Well done.

Great record shot of this family clearing the snow off their roof to reduce the weight. A bit dangerous those such young children playing up high on a roof.
Well managed and presented, you have a good day.
