[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I posted this one the other day, but somehow lost it, so here it is again: a view of an old stone cottage, being slowly overrun by plant life.

I'm constantly amazed by the impacability of natural things. No matter how we attempt to order the world -- dominate it, shape it, tame it -- ultimately nature asserts its own order.

Even on space stations, the eruption of molds on windows, walls, and other surfaces, is a recurrent problem, though they have little to live on apart fom the condensed breath of astronauts.

Here a man-made structure succumbs to the advances of vines, grasses, and flowers. Ultimately the wood of the door, itself once wild, will return to nature, rotting and falling apart and being absorbed back into the mulch. Given long enough, the stones themselves will lose the shape we've imposed on them and go back to being... just stone.


For anyone who's wondering why I've posted a picture of a door on TrekNature, please note that the surrounding environment is the true subject of this photograph, not the door.

Critiques [Translate]

The underlying theme of TrekNature is learning more about the world through nature photography. TrekNature fosters this by allowing photographers to display their work grouped by regions in a supportive and orderly environment. This is accomplished by an easy-to-use system which encourages people to critique each other's work. Integrated with this system are forums designed to encourage discussion about specific photos, countries, and general topics. Since TrekNature is globally oriented, it is completely multilingual capable, allowing for the widest audience possible. Ultimately, TrekNature depends on the civility, honesty and participation of its members. By reviewing the Terms of Service, the TrekNature community will remain true to itself, and helpful to all.
