A landscape might include any of the natural elements of the earth such as ice covered mountains, hills, rivers, lakes, beautiful structures. Transitory elements of nature such as weather conditions and lightning amplify the entire environment.

Our earth has a variety of landscapes which includes icy landscapes, mountainous landscapes, vast arid desert landscapes, islands,  coastal landscapes, densely forested or wooded landscapes. A landscape's character is defined by a sense that place differentiates one region from other regions and the self-image of the people inhabiting it.
