Natural Ruins

I love how this scene atop Norway Pass in Washington puts the viewer there, with the bright colors of the flowers and plants in juxtaposition and harmony with this grouping of destroyed trees. Juvenile conifers lurk in the background, an up-and-coming generation on the rise. I love this peaceful scene, but this one is different from most because of the cycle-of-life in action here. The trees lurking in the background could have grown from seeds these stumps deposited in the ground as they were dying. It’s sad and it’s beautiful.
