Nature is often more pronounced and beautiful when contrasted with what is manmade.
From the 20th floor of our apartment here in Chicago we have an amazing view of the massive skyscrapers, stunning in their architecture and awesome height. The view wouldn't be quite as beautiful though without the emerald river that runs through it and the vast Lake Michigan in the distance. The thriving gardens and parks thoughtfully planted around the city bring a contrast to this concrete jungle that is calming, soft, and alive. What would we do without Nature? How would we feel? How could we live?
