As I’ve said before, every time we go home to Shimane, we love to walk along the edges of Shinjiko and whenever I photograph the lake, the fast-changing weather and light makes it looks completely different each time. This time was perhaps the most dramatic that I had ever seen.
With heavy snowfall the view was truly beautiful; completely white. There were almost none of the Shijimi fishermen that we have shown here in past posts (here). Through mist and snow though, I could make out only a couple of tough characters were out on this icy morning, braving freezing conditions to scrape shells from the bed of the lake. I was well wrapped up and spent a whole morning with my camera to capture them through the snow.
