This is next day of full open Sakura floweres there.
So severe weather condition there! At the end of April there has snow falling. I went there to see Spring festival but I witnesed mid winter landscape there. I am not sure I was lucky or unlucky.

the weather's been totally crazy absolutely everywhere this year. I hear that sakura was in bloom two weeks earlier than usual and now look at this - you've got snow all over! Just unbelievable, but what an image you've created out of this havoc! Stunning picture, so cold and prickly looking but still gorgeous with all that snowy mist over the mountain. Another great work from you.
Thanks and cheers

Another fine photo from the world heritage site. Very few colours but fine tones of grey, green, brown and yellow. The haze around the hillside is very well captured. This looks like a Christmas card, but they shouldn't be taken in late April.

I think you were very lucky, this snow has created a stunning scene for you to capture. To me, this is really like a scene from a fantasy film.

Hello dear takero - What a magical scene, so atmospheric and wonderfully managed. I love the very limited colour palette with its sharp contrasts. Lovely work. warm regards Rosemary

Though i feel sad for the frozen Sakura flowers, I love this photo with its almost B&W taste. Finding small pinches of colors in there is even lovelier :)
Great crisp details to observe: the thatched roofs, the beautiful pines, the mist, the hill... All work in a nice harmony to sum up this wonderful snowy "end of April" photo.

fascinating view from snowy mountain with homes you captured.

always nice to see this style of Japanese architecture!
Hard to believe there is THIS much snow in April!
but i think you were Lucky :)
seeing the snow on the top of the tree tops is a smart touch for the scene.

Well, perhaps that you weren't lucky with the "spring" weather, but you were certainly able to take advantage of it from a photo point of view! Nice architecture in this snowy landscape. The back-ground hill and snow-laden tree between the houses are beautiful.

Oh, no! So sad story for sakura. It looks like a winter day, Takero. Outstanding quality, perfect DoF, I like this ribbing effect after the snowfall. Excellent vertical composition.

Very nice winter shot
The framing is perfect and the rendering of the snow too !
I like those japanese houses especially their roofs
Great one !

beautiful view! It is hard to believe it is spring. But the snow adds an incredible value to the composition. I like also very much the fog behind the trees. Fantastic effect! Also captured from a great POV.
