"Nature is what we see The Hill—the Afternoon Squirrel—Eclipse—the Bumble bee Nay—Nature is Heaven Nature is what we hear The Bobolink—the Sea Thunder—the Cricket Nay—Nature is Harmony Nature is what we know Yet have no art to say So impotent Our Wisdom is To her Simplicity"
"Mountains are always generous. They give me unique sunrises and sunsets, and their silence is only broken by the sounds of nature, which render them even more ‘alive’." -Tiziano Terzani Fourth photograph from the Human vs Nature set Location: Galambra's Peak, Piedmont
"Nature! We are surrounded by her and locked in her clasp: powerless to leave her, and powerless to come closer to her. Unasked and unwarned she takes us up into the whirl of her dance, and hurries on with us till we are weary and fall from her arms." -Goethe
Here is the 12 photographs set that for me - Attilio - represent the vision of Man compared to Nature. From today and for 12 days, we will post a photo a day from this set, with a quote that better symbolizes it.
