This weeks Photo Challenge, Growth, has us “Evoke the excitement of entering a new year with a photo that shows growth.” Two of the photos are recent, while the third photo was taken while hiking at Solstice Canyon in August of 2013.

Nature is surely amazing, whatever man builds, nature seeks to reclaim as its own. First is a vine growing up a concrete wall, the second is nature taking back an abandoned home in Solstice Canyon.

Trees reach for the sky. Their growth only limited by other trees whose limbs are in the way.
