SNOW MONSTER 1/2

We went to look for snowmonsters at Mt.Kattadake in Miyagi prefecture. We went bus bus to the halfway up the mountain.

 樹氷を見に宮城県の蔵王の刈田岳に行きました。山の中腹まではバスです。

Then we got on this big snowmobile.
 
雪上車に乗り換えて。
 
 
 
We arrived this place. Here is very near to top of Mt.Kattadake.
 
山頂のほぼ近く迄行きました。
 
 
 
We found a big snowmonster, or  a oushirabiso tree covered by Rime ice.
 
スノーモンスターとも言われる樹氷とご対面です。
 
 
 
A frost covered tree.
 
とても大きいです。
 
A very tall frost covered tree.
 
のっぽの樹氷にも会いました。
 
 
 
 
I took this picture against the Sun.
 
逆光での撮影です。
 
 
A frost covered tree and I. we could see Pacific Ocean over there.
 
樹氷と私、遠くに見えるのは太平洋です。
 
 
 
Mt.Ushiroeboshidake.
 
後烏帽子岳です。
 
 
Frost covered trees and  a sea of cloud.
 
雲海です。
 
I will upload bigger Snow monsters next time.

  3. 樹氷も雲海も夢のような世界。若いころはスキーが唯一の趣味で有給休暇は全てスキーに費やし、蔵王も行きましたよ。全体の眺めに満足し、ひとつひとつの樹氷には注目していませんでした。カメラを持つと視点も変わりますね。東京の雪のポストも見ました。こちらは、最低-3度~最高5度の気温でもなぜか雪はふりません。I'm longing for a snow day!

      こんにちは。 「スキーこそ物の上手なれ」という諺も有りますね。私ももっと早くカメラを始めていれば、美人の奥さんを貰えたので無いかと後悔してます?
       私はスキーはボチボチやっていました。 子供たちが小学生になったころから家族で色々な所にスキーに行きました。
       ニセコや安比にまた行きたいと思ってます。

      こんにちは。スキー場のもっと上まで森林限界の少し手前で樹氷の観賞をしました。
       この様に晴れる日はめったに無いそうです。とてもラッキーでした。

      Thank you. It was not so cold. Because the day was fine and almost no winds.
      We were very lucky that this fine day would be once in ten days.

  7. Oh my goodness, Minoru, you really do have some snow.
    It looks like lots of fun though, and I love the snow monster you found.
    The photograph against the sun is just gorgeous.
    Happy day to you, my friend!

  12. 青の雪上車が格好いいです。乗客定員は何名くらいですか?逆光の樹氷も素晴らしい。ユーミンの歌にあったダイヤモンド・ダストは蔵王でも見れると聞きましたが、この逆光はダイヤモンド樹氷ですね。最後の雲海と樹氷の写真は最高です。この景色が見れたなら、蔵王まで行ったかいがありましたね。

       こんにちは。 こんなに天気の良い日は10日に1度位だそうです。とても運が良かったです。
       この「ダイヤモンド樹氷」の時は太陽に薄い雲がかかっていましたので、しゃがみこんで撮りました。
      スキーでは蔵王に来た事が無かったので最高でした。

  13. Oh my gosh, Minoru, these are incredible pictures. I wonder ... is this amount of snow unusual for your area? So nice to see you this week on Walk and Click Wednesdays!

    1.  Dear Lissa.
      Thank you. This area is one of the heaviest snow area in the world.
      It would have very heavy snow every year.
