Nature as Art in Urban Life

I have taken a slightly different take on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Nature As Art. I am a committed city dweller, and as such, I often find nature interposed with the everyday objects and activities of urban life. Because of that, I have chosen photos in which nature and beauty are set within the life of the city, becoming its own form of art. Enjoy!

Nature as Art


I did not set out to get the purplish tones to the fine ends of the branches. They appeared when I adjusted the illumination in editing. I very much liked the effect, so I left it in the photo.
