Photographer's Note

known as Omiwatari, this phenomenon occurs almost every year at lake Suwa in Nagano where the constant expanding and contracting of the ice pushes it onto itself. The story goes that a male god from one of the shrines walks across the frozen lake to meet a female god from a shrine on the opposite side...causing the cracks.
