    The “Mount Asahi Trees” shot is breathtaking. Somehow the mix of tree types, including the half submerged chap on the lower left, all unified by the sugar-powder snow makes it feel like some fantastical dessert plate at a Michellin starred restaurant. Totally love it.

      Thanks! I’m really pleased you like that one. It’s one of my favorites too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loved “Tree in Hollow” I personally would have went for a bit more sky but that’s me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I would be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of all this snow I see in your pictures. The little snow we have had in Edmonton is already half melted.

      Whoops! I missed this comment at the time. Sorry Charlie.

      I’m pleased you enjoyed these shots. The balance of land and sky is often quite a personal decision. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I miss the snow, especially now I’m having to use the air conditioning to stop myself from melting now here in Tokyo. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Martin. You are probably on your 2017 Hokkaido Tour right now. Love your snow shots from 2016. It’s a shame we have missed your tour for this year. We are thinking of heading over that way (Asahikawa) in early March. Is there still good snow there then or is it best in Jan? Happy shooting and keep warm.

      Hi Peter,

      It’s hard to say. Jan is definitely better than March, though there will still be snow. The earlier in March the better though.
