They say pictures are worth a thousand words, but I think these photos are worth even more than that.
Sometimes we don’t appreciate what’s going on around us, take a look at nature for example.
It’s quite spectacular what mother nature does on a daily basis.
Awesome occurrences, cool formations and so on.
Check out these 14 photos below as they show the true power of mother nature.
