laws of nature

Directly across from where yesterday's picture was taken you will see this sight. It's the result of a number of factors beginning with encroaching development.

What was once solid forest floor has been transformed in the muck and mire of a swampland. Just west of here a group of homes were built. The construction of these homes and their particular location changed the way that water flows, forcing excess to flow to the east. The boggy conditions have killed this giant and wind, weather and finally gravity brought a dramatic downfall. Even the largest giants are vulnerable.

I'm sure there's a much more dramatic shot to be had, but the last time I checked I couldn't walk on water.
