Additional Information “Lost in Wilderness"

The layout is composed with Nature Aquarium Style that shows the vigorous growth of aquatic plants.
Stem plants in the layout create lively feeling whereas mosses on driftwoods reflect a “wabi-sabi” sense of time’s passage. Foreground of Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' in the layout stimulates the dynamic wave of "flow" in the composition. All plants have been growing flourishingly and its wilderness is truly amazing! Every day, I spend lots of time enjoying the scape while letting my mind drift through every corner of this enchanted forest.
Sometimes, I just feel like I am lost in the wilderness of this beautiful underwater scenery.
