It is rare " ice rime" which is the representative of Yamagata in winter in the world.
The humidity peculiar to the basin surrounded by the mountains,, and an irregular shaped object created by cold air and strong wind. People are called "Ice monster" with a heterosomorphic appearance of the variant. The sight that the harsh environment and the irregular "IceMonster" show is also a source of primitive religious perspectives,
To the extent that it makes the view of nature religious,
Sometimes shine, be divine, even remember fear.

And the person shooting,
I’m shooting the landscape of Yamagata,Japan.
While feeling with the “five senses” the four seasons in Yamagata of Japan living now,
I am photographing the world weaving the mountains, the forest and the river.
