Take the time to look around and study the intimate details, and you’ll see nature’s infinite variety of patterns
There is almost no end to possible pattern subjects in nature: a patch of wildflowers, textured or weathered wood, the details of a bird’s feathers, bubbles in ice, or shapes carved in a beach by a retreating tide. They can be found in the smallest of subjects or in the grandest sweep of the landscape. And patterns don’t exist only as static elements. Dynamic elements—such as passing clouds, or a flock of birds, or flowing water—can converge or interact in compelling patterns.
