Clouds have no frontiers

What a difference a year makes. When David Cardona [photoblog.com] started his project to pay tribute to the people of Japan, following the earthquake and tsunami and subsequent nuclear disaster at Fukushima last year, I made my small contribution with a photo taken on a day with sunshine and clear blue skies. In complete contrast, winter returned with a vengeance today, and this year's photo was shot in the middle of a blizzard, with the sky barely visible for snowflakes.

Thank you David for organising this wonderful event - I think it's wonderful that the membership of Photoblog can come together each year to wish for a continued recovery and a brighter future for all those in Japan affected by this terrible disaster.

You can see more tributes to the people of Japan here [photoblog.com].
