The Elements of Nature are primarily responsible for every single atom / organism present in this Universe. Plato was the first person to ever use the term “Element” in order to represent Air, Fire, Earth and Water.

They Constitute the Origin of all living things. Evey part of the world has their own choice over these Classical elements. They vary from Buddhism, Hinduism, Greek, Babylonian, Chinese.

For example in Chinese elements we have Fire, Earth, Water, Metal and Wood, whereas in India we have Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Void. But Primarily all the religions or Countries dwell upon 4 elements which can be termed as Classical Elements Fire / Earth / Water / Air.

They have a binding ability when combining with each other they affect both collectively and also individually. Here we bring you a post with some great photographs interluding with the Classical Elements of Nature.

Wind

It is more than flow of gases, it may be a breeze to a typhoon.Their Spatial scale and Speed determines their nature.

Wind has always provided great support to mechanical work, even in mythology it has a great impact.
It may sound as a light element, wind is responsible for all those depressions and cyclones in Ocean. It is power, it creates wildfire, affects cattle livestock and gives various natural calamities. On the other hand nothing can overtake a gentle breeze.

In Art aspect of Photography, Wind gives various feelings such as flow, pace, rash, mood-swing, time, relax, float, fly, carry, accommodate, dream, joy and even more.

Earth

Earth was formed approximately 4.5 Billion years ago and in that life started appearing one billion years ago. Here one thing which really fascinates me is the Patience.

The amount of space it gives for everything and the kind of tolerance. Astronomically earth is considered to be a natural satellite itself, since it rotates around sun and moon. The Planet is considered to support life for another 500 million years.

In Art aspects of photography, Earth gives a feel of Patience, tolerance, old-age, downy, simplicity, motherhood, nature, sorrow, life, strength, acceptance, withstand, father and even more.

Water

Made up of two hydrogen and one oxygen molecule, Water covers over 70% of Earth surface, the same amount in Human body also.

Human Civilization wouldn’t have flourished without the likes of water especially in the elements. It forms everything for Humans and all the living things. In this Modern era today, Countries import and export water for many Industrial advantages. The role of water in existence of Humanity and beyond is a very strong factor.

In Art aspects related to Photography, water produces a feel of Flow, uniformity, sadness, tears, woman, free-mind, existence and even more.

Fire

Scientifically it is the Exothermic Chemical reaction of a rapid oxidation.The flame of fire which in visible to naked eye consists of glowing hot gases which helps in producing various colors for flame. The Color of Flame circles all over the color wheel. A fire can start from a simple matchstick to induce a gigantic explosion, it can create as well destroy. This applies to all the elements of Nature.

In Art aspects related to photography, fire produces a feel of warmth, lust, anger, caution, alarm, dreadfulness, vengeance, and sometimes comfort and faith.
