    Masayasu SAKUMA, Japan

This photography was taken in February in Nagano-ken at an altitude of
about 1,700 m.
In Japan, February is the coldest season in a year.
Diamond dust can be seen only a few times during cold season.
Orange circle is diamond dust.
Diamond dust might be occurred on sunny morning under -10 degrees.
And it is a very small crystal of ice, drifting in the air.
I use the soft bokkeh to portray its glitter.
