Each and every year it seems like we get lucky in Japan. This year, on only the second day of the tour, we get the experience of getting blasted my a blizzard! It was something to see, the smaller young monkeys jump on a sister or aunt's back as its the only way around in the deep snow for them.
In between the white out periods when the wind would blow there were great chances to make nice images but you still had to be close as the falling snow really cut down the contrast.
For the very first days of the tour we have had completely different shooting conditions each day so its been amazing so far. I will be posting every couple of days as the tour progresses or whenever my MiFi can get a good LTE/4G signal in the mountains here. More coming soon.
