Northern transitions, Hokkaido inspirations

Late spring in Hokkaido
Playground of the gods
Nature awakens
Earth expels steam
Snow melt brings living water
Hibernation broken
Cherry blossoms dance in the wind
Leaves unfurl
In transition, the earth changes her cloak
Intuitively elemental


Hot springs at Shikotsu-toya National Park, Hokkaido
