Following on from a nice morning at Iwappara...

http://www.snowjapan...anuary-2014-am/

...my friend who I met there invited me over to Yuzawa Kogen where he was doing some work, so that's where I was for a few hours from lunchtime.

And it was lovely too. Hardly any people.

Probably the best views of Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma are from up here. I wouldn't recommend anyone going there in bad weather, the skijo itself is small and not particularly interesting, but on a fine day the views are pretty amazing.

Yes I like that one too. Unfortunately the windows on the Ropeway are really high, and so basically I had my hand up and out of the window holding the camera pointing downwards and pressed the shutter hoping for a result!

I would say you succeeded! Though that does explain why the photo is giving me vertigo :lol:

I was going to say the same thing!
Brain can't process which way is up.
Like an Escher print, somehow.

Sugoi!

Such a contrast with today. Actually, today there's no contrast at all!
