Two views (snowy and sunny) of the main gate of the Heian Shrine

I don't think anyone would call it the “blizzard of '05” but the other day Kyoto certainly did get more snow than normal. It tended to come in heavily, and then be bright and crisp, and repeat. Here are two shots I happened to take an hour and a half apart, of the main gate of the Heian Shrine, as seen from my veranda:
