MOTHER NATURE IS QUITE THE ARTIST

                                          

She's a sculptor.  She's got the Sleeping Giant perfected, after several tries.  I've seen this first one on Nounou Mountain in Kauai.  It doesn't show it in this picture, but there's a stand of trees which make up the giant's sweeping eyelashes:

This one is in Helena, Montana:

And he appears to be floating on his back off the coast of Ireland, 
near the Blasket Islands:

She gave this iceberg a full beard & mustache:

She didn't need the Egyptians & their slaves to carve the sphinx.
She did this one in Pakistan, in Hingol National Park:

She does faces, like this Native American in
the Colorado Rockies:

And this witch in Laguna Beach, California:

She put a man on a mountain in New Hampshire, 
but sadly he fell off:


She paints animals like this Blue Ridge Mountain Bear.  
The Shadow of the Bear can be seen each fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Cashiers, North Carolina as the sun sets behind the mountains:

Of course, she's been painting leaves for centuries:

She's into abstracts, too, 
like the Arbol de Piedra (Tree of Stone) in Bolivia:

And this "Immortal Bridge" in Mt. Tal, China:

Those of you who have seen the James Bond movie,
"The Man With the Golden Gun",
might remember this island in Phang Nga Bay, Thailand:

This is the Cave of the Crystals in Mexico.  
The crystals are two to three stories tall:

She dabbles in science & built a natural nuclear reactor 
in the Oklo mine in Gabon 
about 2,000,000,000 years ago:

She still finds time to play.  
The sailing stones of the Racetrack Playa in Death Valley, California, 
seem to strangely move on their own, 
leaving long trails behind them in the cracked clay. 
NASA research suggests that during the winter months, 
ice forms around the rocks, 
allowing them to slip across the frozen surface of the playa.

I'm not sure if this fits here but it's charming
& Mother Nature did make this beautiful baby!!


I admit she's slow, but I think she shows a lot of talent!!











Many cultures assign gender to things like “Mother Nature”, “Father Time” & “Broad daylight”----fishducky
