Photographer's Note

When we first arrived to Owikeno Lake area, right after unpacking two of my workmates and I decided to have a look at nearby hotspring, only about ten kilometers from the camp. Ever since I learned to enjoy them in Japan long time ago, hotsprings occupied a very warm place in my heart. Unfortunately most of well-known, easily accessible ones are far removed from nature that created them, quite often being developed commercially to resemble resorts, very disliked by my solitude-loving soul.
It is increasingly difficult to find a hotspring where one can sit undisturbed for as long as one wishes, contemplating pristine surroundings, and not having to pay a dime for this pleasure. After all, we are creatures of this planet and should be able to participate in its beauty for free.

A person in this photo (another two in this theme to follow) is one of my coworkers.

For all of you trapped in winter cold of Northern Hemisphere, enjoy!
