~ Towering Trees ~ Weekly Photo Challenge – Opposites

This week, Ben Huberman challenges us to “show how opposites can tell a story about people, places, or objects.” Whenever I see something man-made juxtaposed to the natural landscape, I feel the tension.

    A very creative idea for the challenge. Well done!


  2. Indeed, I enjoy planting things and watching it grow, but feel quite differently about things growing which I didn’t plant!

  6. I love the opposing elements in this. You did a great job. I love taking landscape pics, and have since I was a child. I find more and more that it’s harder to find a clean shot that lacks in human interference. Wi-fi is nice but I prefer wildlife.

    Sometimes the ugly photo intrusion comes in quite handy!!! Good choice

    Thanks, Tina! It was such a stark contrast when I saw this scene. Once again having a cell phone on me allowed this capture.
