A frozen pond: Kencho-ji

In the bluish white sunlight of a winter afternoon, the thin sheets of ice are shining dimly on the quiet surface of the pond.

The cold tranquility of midwinter has secretly settled itself down in this garden to let us perceive the meaning of deep and clear stillness of this season.

This smooth pond is always serene and undisturbed in the rapid passage of time and seasons.
