Tri-X Trees

Hello World again? It’s been some time, but here is finally Blog post #2!

I like Tri-X at 1600! And what works better with my contrasty friend than trees in winter? So here is some cool down for you during the hot summer times.

Aoiike (青い池), the blue pond near Shirogane Onsen in Biei, Hokkaido, Japan. You probably know the place from the famous Mac wallpaper. While we were there it was decidedly colder and the usually blue water was frozen and covered with fresh snow.
