Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Growth. I’ve already posted one response to this challenge, but here’s another one:

Tropical growth in the Cordillera Central of Puerto Rico. More photos are here.

And here is yet a third take on “Growth”.

  2. And a great post it is! The first image captures ‘tropical rain forest.’ So very soothing, with the lure of the river in the distance! Z

  12. Storm clouds are my favorite. Watching storms “grow” is something I did with my dad when I was a kid. One time we were standing in our car port and lightning struck the ground about 50 yards from us. I’ll never forget the look on my dads face or how we both laughed as we retreated into the house. :)

  14. Oh, I love these. The vegetation looks very dense. I have been to the central parts of Puerto Rico and it can be very jungle-like. I am off to see the rest that you have of this area. Super pix’s …!!!!

    • Originally, there probably was jungle everywhere on the hills of the northern part of the Cordillera Central that are oriented toward the Atlantic and where the rain falls (the southern part, in the rain shadow, is quite dry). But with human settlement most of the real jungle is gone, except in the El Yunque Rain Forest where it is preserved… Still, the jungle reasserts itself with unbelievable rapidity whenever it is allowed to!

      • Actually, there are a lot of central areas that still have deep vegetation. My hubby has family in an area called Penuelas that is very, very rural and farm-like and is surrounded by jungle and deep forested mountains. It isn’t a place to travel to without knwoing the people. They all have rifles and aren’t afraid to use them on strangers. Sssoooo …. I guess it depends on how close to the cities you travel that showcases the end of something that should have been preserved properly. That’s progress for you. Hope you get to see some of those areas one day. Keep posting those great photos.
