[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is taking of mountains seen there when going to the Hiranai-cho in Aomori Prefecture located in northern most of the Mainland to have taken the swan last winter. This place seemed to be northern provinces of winter, and a lowering, solemn air drifted around.

Tsugaru is regional name that points at the present Aomori Prefecture west and says.

Hi Mikio,

Awesome layered vista and panorama. Beautiful landscape and well framed here. Tfs.


Hi Mikio,
We don't get to see that many landscape photos from Japan, so I do hope you will share many more of them with us. But, I do hope that the next one will have more details and look less soft. What did you do to this photo to make it look so soft? It almost looks like you added gaussion blurr.

Hello Mikio,

This is an amazing landscape capture, and the fading mountains give this great effect and creates depth!
The light is typical winter and very much alike what we have in Norway this time of year...
A balanced composition with fine details!

Hi Mikio,
to me it is a beautiful style that give the lines and hues of a different kind.
Very good hues and line of tones, that make me think of the Japanese Haiku.

This image reminded me immediately evoked a scene in a novel by a writer of your land, Mikio. In "South of the Border, West of the Sun", Haruki Murakami describes a place where his character, the mysterious Shimamoto, is directed to drop into a river the ashes of her baby. I do not know in this landscape there is a hidden river, but just imagine that there runs, oblivious to men. Thank you for enriching my memories, Mikio.
