    Gold in Nature / Trees

This is "Mawarizeki Lake" in Aomori Prefecture. It is one of the coldest areas in Japan. A lonely tree stands on this lake. When I first visited this place, I felt the trees were very lonely and sad. This tree was very attractive. Since then, I have visited this place every winter. And I began to think that this tree was lonely and not sad. I felt this tree was playing with the sun. The tree standing on this lake was not alone.
