Wednesday, the day after all the thunder storms pummeled Western Europe.
A day when it is good to see that nature can also be frail and fragile, as is obvious from this picture. Wildflowers often have such an untouched splendor. The concept of beauty which is, according to many, closely connected to the Golden Mean also known as the golden ratio. This concept of beauty and proportion was used by Leonardo da Vinci, who studied nature from his early years on, in all of his works.
The golden mean is being perceived as both divine and pleasing to humans so it is understandable that especially in the arts it is used very much. But as you can see in the picture it really is a natural phenomenon. And that is also why most people find it very comforting and pleasing to be in nature; the breath of the golden ratio is healing and uplifting and very much in sync with our own nature.
