Thursday Challenge #4-Complex


Complex By 'Nature'

If you can approach the world's complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size, not all that important in the greater scheme of things."
-Daniell Dennett-

This picture is of the aerial roots of The Great Banyan Tree in the Botanical Garden of Howrah,the widest tree in the world.Take a few steps under its canopy and you will feel like you are amongst a hundred trees in a forest.Need anything more complex and yet beautiful?:-)

Have a good day!
-R.

PS: Get more complex at this week's Thursday Challenge here.

Nature is always complex and intricate. If it was that simple, humans would have understood by now and stopped destroying it..
