16 Photos That Show You Things About Our World You Did Not Know Existed
9In the face of adversity
One lesson that nature teaches us is that even in the face of adversity, it is possible to stay strong and remain upright. This tree is the perfect example of that. Strong winds blowing in one direction have shaped the tree in this way. But it didn’t break. It adjusted to the wind and changed its shape. It is still providing shade to animals.
10Another strong tree
This is another tree that shows that with determination and willpower, you can grow in situations that aren’t conducive to growth. There is a stone wall obstructing the growth of the tree, but bit by bit, it squeezed itself through and managed to grow to full height. It made a small hole in the wall and managed to grow through that.
11A white fern
Ferns are known to be deep green in color. But this lucky individual found a white fern while hiking. This may be because of some genetic changes in the fern. Plants often look white when they don’t have chlorophyll. It looks absolutely gorgeous and there should b more of these.
12Everything looks small
As humans have evolved, we have achieved more and more impossible feats. At one time, skyscrapers were the tallest buildings one could think of. But those days are gone. Now there are buildings that can make skyscrapers look tiny in comparison. This picture was taken atop the tallest building in the world, the BurjKhalifa, in Dubai. The building is 828 m tall and makes skyscrapers look insignificant.
