Structures in great natural beauty should be simple and inconspicuous.
This pier is nicely harmonious with the scene of the lake.

Calm lake

I have visited this lake a number of times.
I believe that I have already gotten familiar with the lake, but it seldom shows me its elegant aspect.

Winter rain

The rain has washed away all of the autumn.
The memory of the harvest will also disappear soon.

For eighty years, the bridge has been employed as an important mean of transportation.
The beauty improves more and more with each passing year.

Before dark

     The setting sun comes early in late autumn.
     She is in a hurry to get home, feeling the cold wind.

Lake among mountains

     Many signs of fish tell me that the lake is so bountiful.
     Mountains, forests, water; all preserve a lot of lives.
