The Power of Nature
I have scheduled posts for the next few days... enjoy!
These are just a few images that remind me of the power of natural forces... and not the ones like hurricanes, earthquakes, and the like. The first picture was the sunrise the morning I left home for this Ohio hike. It was so awesome I had to stop the car and take this picture.
This one is much more subtle... just an old shed covered in vines. But not so many years ago this little building was probably important to someone's life. Maybe it housed a tractor. I didn't brave the poison ivy to look inside, so it could have been used for anything. Maybe chickens lived there, or a pony. But now the field is reclaiming it... slowly the vines and the weather will pull it back to the earth
Finally, the fungus will even have their way with the wood. This is some polypore working on a log. In a few years the wood will be returned to the soil.
