Life or Death

Observing this scene while I was searching the right point of view to take my photo, the idea of "life or death" came to my mind immediately. The arid ground, the shrubs that stubbornly were trying to grasping the few life juices from the earth and the water-promising clouds on the far distance, while a dead tree was standing there, as a warning about the risks of growing too much in the a desert land. This is the hard survival in the extreme lands.
