The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Forces of Nature



Sawyer Glacier, Alaska

Sawyer Glacier, Alaska

When thinking of Forces of Nature Sawyer Glacier came to mine. Nothing is more powerful or amazing than flowing water freezing in time.

Some other photos that came to mind for this week were the glorious Magnolia which is short lived blooms but well worth the wait. This past weekend I was amazed by the peeling bark. It reminded me that some will look at this as ugly, dead, in need of being taken down yet I saw a beautiful, strong, well rooted tree shedding what was no longer needed. The roots of trees are a true force in nature. The intricacy of the roots as they meander along the earth down into the depth of the soil. We can only see a small portion, like the iceberg the strength and depth is below the surface. The next photos are the powerful source of water weather waterfalls or the power of the ocean – both awe inspiring.

The forces of nature can be powerful, beautiful, delicate as well as temporary or infinite.

  3. Terrific photographs and entries for the challenge — of course, my favorites among these are the Pacific Ocean shots :). The roots of the tree I really like, and this year, my goal is to add more tree photos in my photo collection.

    • Lola Jane – Thank you for visiting. I was just thinking about trees myself tonight and plan to print photos of the trees to place on my walls as reminders to remain grounded. Looking forward to seeing your tree photos.
