We, human beings, are great at creating all kinds of things, including works of art. But as much as we try to use our imagination and create both realistic and abstract art, Mother Nature seems to be one step ahead of us. Everything she does is pure beauty! She creates unbelievable masterpieces using all instruments that are at her disposal: shadows, light, wind, gravity, color, and numerous laws of physics. Just stop for a minute and look around you – there’s so much beauty it’s impossible to fathom it all at once! Here we’ve gathered 20 times art created by Nature was much better than the actual art.
