In a cold winter day for open stgage performance, he charged very good enegry of hot "SAKE" (Japanese traditional liquor) at the back stage. His next turn was halg an hour later. until then he would be hot and stand-by.

I'm sorry I've been remiss in commenting on your recent remarkable shots, Takero! This is a nice one, a classic of yours, showing a performer at rest in a moment of humanity. The contrast of the cold environment and the hot flame works well, and it's easy to see why he's chosen this spot to rest. What was he performing in?

You keep showing your signature skill with your talented composition. Warm fire and drink make me feel warm inside too! Well done Takero!

As I see, the day was very cold, so it is no wonder that a man warming up with a hot drink by the fire. Placing the pot in the foreground was a great idea. Great reportage photography.

this picture is not only masterly composed and shot from perfect POV - it actually makes me dwell on it for quite a while exploring detail after detail. Very interesting scene and so real! I like all the natural colors which highlight the character of this photo.
TFS and have a good evening!

Really beautiful composition with the flames and the old kettle in the foreground, making a beautiful lead into the shot. The capture of the man enjoying his respite from the show, and a well deserved hot drink in the snow is brilliant, he seems to be in a world occupied only by his sake. Really nicely done, and as always, superb depth of field.
All the best

A superb photo where blurred the sake kettle in the foreground is an excellent lead in to the main subject the man having a short break with a cup of sake. TFS and have a nice day!

Hello Takero - The way you have composed this with the kettle in the FG and the warm blooms of flame give the shot a good immediacy, I feel as if I an sat opposite the sake drinker. He looks deep into the depths of his cup... is he contemplating another shot do you think, or will it spoil his performance? Good shot and a fascinating 'behind the scenes' glimpse. Warm regards rosemary

Even though I have not been on Trek Earth for a while, I am glad to see that you are still delighting us with wonderful culturally rich images. Here I really love the iron kettle on the flames in the foreground as an introduction element and it sets the scene for the man drinking his hot beverage to keep warm. Good focus on the man too.
