Entry Description: Landscape from the sky is a unknown world for me.
Ice landscape from the sky particularly fascinated me.
When I saw the scene, “Art of Nature” I was reminded of these words 
“BIRTH, PROPAGATION, CHAOS, GENESIS, METEMPSYCHOSIS,etc..”
I wanted to leave these messages from nature. These are the metaphors of the human world. 
This landscape reminded me “Ice Age”.
Some scientists said there is a “mini ice age on the way.
I think our lives are threatened by pending natural disaster, but at the same time are protected by nature.
