While Mother Nature can be frightening at times with her erupting volcanos, earthquakes that cause tsunamis and landslides, and tornados that can uproot a tree in seconds, there is a softer, more nurturing side to her. Mother Earth has blessed us with utopian paradises of radiant hues in the ocean and colossal trees that can grow to reach the height of a 37-story building. This personification of Earth-Mother’s life-giving and nurturing aspect of nature has created works of art around the world distinctive in their own way for us to savor.
These photos are just some of the epic creations Mother Nature has gifted us.
