“The Polar Express” – Aizu, Japan – Hideyuki Katagiri – Featured Photographer
This has got to be one of the most spectacular winter photos I have ever seen. Is that train bound for the North Pole? I knew Japan was beautiful, but my mind would have a hard time dreaming up a more beautiful winter wonderland. So please, take another sip of hot coco, warm up by the fire, and enjoy Hideyuki’s amazing photo. Once you have soaked it all in please visit his site at http://500px.com/hideyuki-5.
Take it away Hideyuki:
This photo was taken two years ago. This is the first bridge over the Tadami River in Mishima, Fukushima, Japan and famous for the Japanese railroad. By the way, Fukushima divides into three areas – Aizu, Hama dori, and Naka dori. Here in the Aizu area the nature is very special. In winter, Aizu receives the heaviest snowfall in almost all of Japan. This photo was taken in February during an extremely heavy snow season. I shoved away snow and climbed to the top of this large mountain. On the top, I was impressed by the perfect snow world! I waited until the train passed and took this with my Canon 5D and 24-70mm lens.
I photographed all four seasons of Aizu for a few years. I will hold a photo exhibition on 24th-30th,May,2012 in HCL photo gallery Shinjuku-Gyoen.. Please come here if you can!
