Ammonite shells are a naturally occuring example of the Fibonacci sequence. If you draw a quarter circle in each Fibonacci square, they connect to form an ever increasing spiral. Willing to see some more ?

Emptiness is not nothingness. It is simply the opposite of full of it.

That's absolutely true, Ewa, about the ascending / descending squares, and I believe it was Pythagoras who discovered that, about 2,400 years ago, in ancient Greece, and was illustrated by Leonardo DaVinci. Gorgeous capture.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
