Can any comparison be made between the powers of man and nature? Even if one brings it up just for the sake of knowledge, the latter is going to be the unrivaled victor. No matter how advanced and technically sound the human brain is supposed to be, they will never surpass the indomitable spirit of nature that leaves no chance to prove how amazing and powerful it actually is.
Here are 23 amazing photos that show the power of Mother Nature.
1. Plants occupying the stairs
The abandoned escalator is home to plants now and can hardly be used by human beings. The place that had otherwise become a reservoir of stagnant water, managed to grow plants to make it look more serene.
2. Fisherman’s paradise
The old woodhouse of a fisherman by the lake has now become a scenic beauty amidst the water all around and beneath it. The apparent shift and rise in the level of water made the house a part of the lake.
3. Sporting pathway
The curved pathway surrounded by plants that look like cut out pipes typifies the look of a bike, racing against gravity.
4. The actual ‘green’ house
The once upon a time greenhouse has now become a garden of lush greenery. Plants have occupied the place completely and create their own beautiful charm.
5. Green tunnel of mystery
Not just tumbler images, but this picture of an old railway tunnel that has naturally turned into a green zone is simply amazing to look at. The green plants have covered every inch of the tunnel making it look like a mystical garden.
6. The largest aquarium
The particular floor of a shopping mall that has been long shut down is now home to thousands of fish. The place has become like a giant aquarium which holds more fishes than a pond ever could.
7. Nature percolates through metal
Plants and small little shrubs have grown out of the steering wheel of an abandoned car showing how nature cannot be stopped with heavy metals either.
8. A little bunch of happiness
A small little flowering plant has grown almost in the middle of a well-cemented road, symbolizing a little ray of hope amidst everything that is dull and banal.
9. A step towards a mighty tree
The little sprout that has sprung up on the sidewalk is going to bear the test of time and turn into a mighty tree someday.
10. Growing on the walls
The small little plants that have grown on the walls are taking chances with their survival although there is no surety of life.
11. A tree growing on another tree
Life supports life. This image of a large tree, supporting the growth of a small plant on one of its branches is an example of the same.
12. Tree of Life
At the Olympic National Park, Washington, this is a very large tree’s roots, strong enough to hold the two hills together. The tree acts like a bridge that connects the two.
13. Life in something mundane
A sign of resistance speaks it all. The stone-like cold space has a sign of life that shows the power of resistive force and a will to live among all odds.
14. Do not give up no matter what
When everything seems to be at an end, there is just a single sign and a will to hold onto life as depicted by the lone tree at the edge of the hill. It faces the calamities of nature and stands tall despite everything.
15. Nature will not let war win
This is probably the best picture among all, showing how a tree has grown penetrating the soldier’s helmet from almost the middle of it.
16. A tree has found its comfort space
The lavender colored flowering tree has found its best place. Growing from the corner of a closed and worn out window.
17. There can never really be an obstruction to life
Believe it or not, if life wants to emerge out of the dead and concrete, it would do so for there is no greater power than life in itself. The image of a plant, breaking the soil and trying to come out of it is the best example.
18. Tree from within a brick
The tree shows its will to continue growing even when it has a brick to restrict its way. The tree grows from within it, creating a space for itself.
19. Even the stop sign couldn’t stop it
This tree’s giant trunk gave rise to a large branch that almost swallowed half of the signpost showing ‘stop’ that fell on its way. This shows how nothing can really stop someone who has an affirmative will to keep moving forward.
20. Ship or a garden?
The desolate ship that stands still in between the water holds life. Life in the form of trees, plants, and shrubs of a variety form a canopy that covers half of the ship.
21. Bitumen that was resisted
The sticky layer of bitumen could not resist the little plant from cropping up. The plant has emerged in a way as if it uncovered the shroud of the sticky thick layer covering it.
22. Why leave the tiniest scope to exist
The tiny little shrub has found its way to grow and come out in the open, even if it has to come through small holes formed on a wooden table-like structure.
23. Lake Tree at Canada
The lake tree at Canada, standing on a rock that is submerged under water, is a symbol of life and hope that stands above all odds.
