A picture taken in March of 2011 shows a tsunami wave flooding over the breakwater in Miyako city. The shot was quickly spread by the media and became one of the symbols of the merciless elements that caused massive destruction in Japan. It’s amazing how the power of nature embodies itself in most destructive and most peaceful phenomena at the same time. Tsunami waves, volcanic eruptions, beehives of most intricate shapes, and trees respecting each other’s space — it’s all about our almighty Mother Nature.
Here Bright Side, we can’t wait to show you these shots capturing the unsurpassed power of nature.
