By amazing luck, just before submitting this I realised that there was another Exotika competition and there had to be an Ice-theme this time. I was about to submit it as an ordinary landscape but thought it would be fun to enter anyway.
Either way I was going to mention that This can be seen in a variety of ways, It could be fantasy, It could be science fiction-maybe a freak climate change is involved. It may be considered surreal, almost dreamlike-You wouldn't see snow covered coconut trees in real life. It could also have an element of humour, like something You would see on an article about global climate change. And just to add more confusion, some might see tropical plants growing on a frozen ice cap and others may see the tropics of the equator being dumped under snow.
I also wanted to do something different by making a cold world but using warm colours, rather than the traditional blues and whites.
