Nature – Symmetry

mountain view
It is the harmony of the diverse parts,
their symmetry, their happy balance;
in a word it is all that introduces order, all that gives unity,
that permits us to see clearly and to comprehend
at once both the ensemble and the details.
Henri Poincare

“The most general law in nature is equity-
the principle of balance and symmetry
which guides the growth of forms
along the lines of the greatest structural efficiency.”

  1. My I ask what mountain it is of the first picture? I just visited Mount St. Helens, Washington. Of course it doesn’t have snow this time of the year. 36 years after its eruption, the far away bottom shows a little grow. Thanks for liking my posts.

      1. I just visited Mt. St. Helens with my daughter and son-in-law. Took quite a few pictures. The volcano is still active. In the same evening, we went on a dinner cruise on Hood River. It was enjoyable. One couple got married on the ship. πŸ™‚ In fact, I’m going to post a few photos of Mt. St. Helens from my trip. πŸ™‚ I used to live in Portland.
