Impression Very Fine. Skillfully executed "bokashi" shading; light "gauffrage" to snow in trees; astonishingly life-like "reflection" seen in lake.
Condition Pristine. Deep, strong colors. Found still inside original "presentation folder"-- an uncirculated print. (No flaws noted--slight toning.)

Comments Strikingly beautiful wintertime image of a reflected Mt Fuji seen at Tagonoura.
