Quiz #1 Result: Nature

The snowy mass of Mount Hira rises behind a snow-covered village and clumps of bamboo by an inlet of Lake Biwa. The attendant poem in the upper left corner reads: <br />         He who would see the beauty of the evening on the peaks of <br />         Hira must behold it after the snows have fallen and before the <br />         flowers are fully blown.<br />
