The fire of a winter’s sunset reflected in a small pond, on the outskirts of the potato farming town of Kutchan. The bare shirakaba (silver birch) trees, allowed in the reflection of the pale blue Mount Niseko Annupuri (1,308 m), which is part of the Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru Kaigan Quasi National Park, on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaidō.
