My desire to capture the sunrise drives me to head for Otoineppu, where the Teshio River flows.
Amidst extreme cold, and temperatures below minus 18 degrees Celsius, the sun begins to climb, casting golden light on the sparkling, frost-covered trees and the Teshio River.
Soon after, diamond dust begins to descend upon the woods that flank the riverside.
