The Veins and Blood of Nature

The water in this photo represents the blood of nature, while the trees represent the body and lungs of the world. I found this composition very interesting because in them they merge together. The tree branches represent the veins and the sun the energy that - in connection with all the other elements creates life. Fire(The sun), Water(The water), Earth(The tree) and Air(through the small movements created upon the water by the wind) are all represented here. The four primary elements that are the core of life, the materials through each nature lives through and feeds on.
