    Ginzan Onsen is an old hot spring resort located in central northern Japan. Snow had been falling for a few days so the village was covered with a fresh white layer. The snow picked up in the afternoon, with impressive large snowflakes. I used the flash of my second camera to illuminate them during the exposure and show them in the image.

    Great call to use your flash to illuminate the snowflakes in the scene. They add a great layering element and create the look of a fairytale painting. Nicely done!
