DAWN 8sun Obi Kudzu cloth obi

Every early morning in winter, I went outside to look at the sky, wanting to see the purple before dawn. However, I could never see it, and later I learnt that the sky turns purple on days with many clouds.

On the other side of the rising sun, the sky in the west is a beautiful purple. I think this is the colour of the earth’s shadow cast by the sun, mixed with the madder colour of the sunrise.

In any case, the ever-changing hues of the sky illuminated by the sun are a wonder. The colours reflected on the pure white snow surface through the dry Hokkaido air are indescribably beautiful.

And then it becomes the usual scene.
