A snow storm closed in on this frozen lake in Japan.
The harsh freezing temperatures and whipping winds forced the whooper swans to hunker down among the large sections of broken ice.
Thanks for looking,
Lee

Thanks Herman. These snow storms appear and disappear very quickly and make visability at times near impossible. We had to try and make the most of them Smile
