Snowy morning

When I woke up on February 3, it was snowing and the snow had already piled.
February 3 is the day before the beginning of spring in Japanese old calendar, and it is called Setsubun.
Seto jinja, which is shinto shrine in my town, had red flags of setsubun, and people came to visit the shrine in the falling snow.

The following photo is Benten island, which is not really an island left from land but adjoining small space.
Everything was covered with snow, and the red rail bridge was so beautiful in white scenery.

We had summer of intense heat last year, and now cold wave and snowfall.
These abnormal climate might have been caused by environmental pollution.
