Blue Pond, Hokkaido

Photograph by Kent Shiraishi, My Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

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.
