Shinto New Year

Posted by Mike on January 3, 2009

On 12/31 and 1/1/09¬† I visited the local Shinto Shrine for New Year’s and a Shinto Wedding.

On New Year’s Eve it was snowing and since the Shrine is located up in the foothills it was snowing and made for really good photo opportunities regardless of how cold it was.

First, there is Snow Falling on Cedar…

Snow and Sun…

Posted by Mike on January 3, 2009

This never happens around here so I had to get up early and go out to chase some photos as the day warmed up and went back to winter gray…But it was worth it.
