Germinating seeds and growing plants exert tremendous forces on inanimate objects around them that confine them. Plants can break concrete, crush stone and split hardwood. More can be read about this process and its mechanism here.

  1. I have seen plants push up through three inches of asphalt. Now that is strong desire to see the sun.

  2. Wow! Those are awesome shots.

  3. Nick, Nature is a force. Have a great week. Sylvia D.

  4. The two side photos make such a perfect "frame" for the center...a beginning filled with hope and years of growth and life, to become what we see on the sides. Awesome artistic rendering using photos!


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
