The Might of Mother Nature

Oftentimes we hear stories about pieces of nature that are claimed by industry and housing projects. As if Mother Nature would be defenceless against our will imposing on her.

Here we see an image of the reverse. A once mighty industrial complex along the Rhine is being reclaimed by nature. People in the surrounding area still remember how thirty years ago this was a fully operative factory. Now it is the last of it's kind, slowly falling to pieces, almost completely overgrown.

It sort of makes you wonder how powerful and important mankind really is.
