Nature's Grip

This image started when I was photographing flowers in the garden outside my home. I was considering how humanity treats nature when I started to alter this image. I wanted to make the point that humans tend to ignore: that the Earth and life itself is held up by our environment and the natural world. Its force is stronger than any weapon or human will, and harm to the natural world due to humanity will always, in turn, end up harming humanity. The force of nature needs to be respected and adored by the human race or we will face the consequences.
