Nature always finds a way to amaze us and be noticed. She does it from the smallest things – like a cat’s splashes of color – to the larger ones, like a giant, colorful petrified opal or a tree that draws a perfect arc connecting two sidewalks. Some people have had the chance, and especially the responsiveness, to immortalize some of the wonders they have encountered: can you believe that a piece of ice can be the same as a chessboard with pawns? Could you imagine a geometrically perfect design created simply by the shadows cast by the branches of a tree? Beauty is in the little things and the unexpected. We have selected 15 photos that show how nature can offer us little wonders: just stop and watch.
