A Painting by Nature

A Beautiful Dendritic Pattern Created by Nature

The first impression you may get from the photo above is that an artist has made a beautiful painting showing a tree with branches sans its leaves. You would be surprised that the above painting has been created (or painted) by nature itself. This is a photo that I clicked somewhere in eastern Europe from a height of 36000 feet on a flight from Dubai in United Arab Emirates to Manchester in United Kingdom. This dendritic pattern has been formed by the play of many contributing streams and rivers on the surface of the earth. The area spreads over several kms.

It is when I see such natural beauty that I want to travel more and more!
