Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal
For this week’s photo challenge of renewal I am posting an image that encapsulates its definition. I found this tree within the limits of the Mayan Ruins of Palenque, a stunningly beautiful architectural relic of the past in southeastern Mexico. During the time when the city was occupied, a majority of the jungle was cleared out to accommodate for the population and functionality of the ancient metropolis. After the city was abandoned sometime in the 7th century the jungle eventually took back the land that it rightfully owned, and flourished back to it’s natural state once again. The light coming through the jungle canopy was a beautiful light green filtered hue on the day we went. Life seemed to be breathing all around us in harmony. Ah, Mexico.

Glorious photograph – and a wonderful story of renewal by our poor planet. 🙂
I may have to snag this to use as my desktop background image 🙂
Palenque is a beautiful area and these trees have grown from the ruins of the ancient Mayan city.
