# RNAYYAR Generative Landscape

Initially, I wanted to have a Bhutan inspired mountain-scape with Buddhist temples at the peaks. I couldn’t figure out how to establish temples at the peaks without recycling the Planting the Flag code, but I didn’t know how to tweak that function that renders the terrain in the first place so I gave up. Then I changed my idea anyways.

These are some strong and determined birds migrating to warmer climate.  They have a long way to go.

I don’t really like how this appears in-site so I’m attaching an openprocessing.org link that will take you to a full screen version of this:

I highly recommend looking at the link instead!
