Message of cover photo from by Photographer Hideo MATSUI (Member of Nikakai Association of Photographers): I visited Hokkaido in the middle of winter and, from Rausu Port, took the sightseeing boat for the drift ice cruise. I was able to shoot the moment a Steller's sea eagle took off from drift ice and flying toward me. I have been to Hokkaido for so many times, but it was the moment that I felt my dream came true.
