Having grown up in northern Australia where it doesn’t snow at all, snow is very exciting for me. It was basically what I was most looking forward when I learnt that I would be moving to Fukui.
Over this past weekend, Fukui had its heaviest snowfall in some time. While it did snow last year, it was nowhere near as much as this past weekend, so to say I was excited is a bit of an understatement.
However, since it was snowing quite heavily for most of the weekend, I waited until it settled down before heading out to enjoy it… which didn’t happen until Saturday night. So, camera in hand, I headed out for a late night stroll in the snow.
There’s a stillness that comes with the snow, it almost felt as though time had stopped…
