Blue Pond, Hokkaido

Photograph by Kent Shiraishi, My Shot

The "blue pond" of the famous tourist resort in Biei, Hokkaido, Japan, is a place where many tourists gather in spring, summer, and autumn. However, since this pond freezes in winter, nobody is there during that period. This photograph was taken during the first snow of the season as it fell over the blue pond.
