The fog is clearing a little with my new machine - so I'm starting to come up to speed!
On a number of occasions I thought that I need to post something about the nature of nature. While we all love the images of chocolate box sunsets there is more to the nature of nature than just beauty. Most of the things we look at and admire exist because of competition with other living things - and I don't think we should shy away from this.
The world is remarkable because of what it holds and the way it world, not because of how it makes us feel (although I'm very glad it makes me feel that way!). We can't admire the power of hawks without acknowledging that they eat rabbits.
So here are a couple of images to remind me that some of the power of nature rests in the fact that it can do us harm! Thinking of this is the best way I know to remind us that we part of nature, not just separate observers.
You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.
Enjoy the pictures.
