Challenge #20 in the Nature and Culture series. Hosted by AndrePooh.
Challenge has finished
Art is the product or process of deliberately arranging items (often with symbolic significance) in a way that influences and affects one or more of the senses, emotions, and intellect. (Wikipedia) - In that sense Nature cannot create art, since it is not deliberate, but when we make a picture of it, it is deliberate. Show us a photo of something natural that resembles art, maybe an unusual rock or tree or a natural ice sculpture. Please comment on what we see.

They say that nature doesn't create art, but I beg to differ. There is never-ending beautiful art in every snowflake.
