Japan Alps

Another view of the Japan Alps, shot from the observation deck of the Nishihotakaguchi mountain station.   It provides quite a breathtaking view of the Japan Alps and despite the cold, we stayed up here until closing time taking as many shots as we could.

I've brightened this image considerably to bring out the snow, hopefully haven't overdone it too much… good night from Tokyo!

A little break from my street shots, this was taken earlier this year from a cable car on the Shinhotaka ropeway.  I’m generally not one for shooting from a moving platform (let alone shooting through window smeared with handprints) but I couldn’t resist the patterns in the snow and this one turned out surprisingly clean.
