Golden Light on a Canvas of Snow

Many houses in Shiwa are withdrawn from the roads and require long driveways for access. In winter they can be difficult to keep clear of snow, and the farther you get from the center of town the less likely you are to expect guests. So it’s easy to understand how shoveling snow can fall down several notches on your list of priorities. You have less time to do it too since the sun begins its descent as early as four in the afternoon (there’s no daylight savings in Shiwa). However, all of these factors combine to form this scene, a moment in which the sun setting behind the mountain range spilled golden light on a pure canvas of snow and rendered the shadows blue. This town never ceases to provide such moments.
