The Edge of Civilization

That place where we can still see our homes but one step further and we may be lost to the wild. There are wonderful monsters, large and small that lurk beyond and below. If you sit still it will swallow you whole and return you to the ground from which you came.


Both of these photos were taken in Oregon while Julie and I were visiting family. They are two of my favorite from that trip. Civilization and nature are always at odds with each other. I feel these photos capture that dynamic and depict where nature is constantly pressing against the edge of civilization.
