新年あけましておめでとうございます
本年もよろしくお願いします

Today is the first day of the new year that I've spent in Otaki; I was in Kyoto over the holidays.
Throughout the day I've marveled at the winter light as it plays across the landscape. The low and flat rays of the sun slink through deep gorges of the Otaki Valley, and leap out from ridgelines in the most amusing ways. This interplay of light and earth casts deep blue shadows down the valley, creating a landscape of interloping framents of light and dark. It's a landscape made whole by being broken apart.

Akeome, kotoyoro, as the kids say!

That's a beautiful shot. Must be beautiful around the Kiso valley area right now. Hmm, long weekend looming... :-)

It did, indeed, dawn. A great photo of it doing so...
