Natural Decay

ὥστ' εἰ τῷ προσιέναι καὶ ἐγγὺς εἶναι γεννᾷ, τῷ ἀπιέναι ταὐτὸν τοῦτο καὶ πόρρω γίνεσθαι φθείρει, καὶ εἰ τῷ πολλάκις προσελθεῖν γεννᾷ, καὶ τῷ πολλάκις ἀπελθεῖν φθείρει·

Hence, if it [the sun] generates by its approach and proximity, the same thing comes to destroy by its retreat and distance, and if it generates many times by its approach, it destroys many times by its retreat.

- Aristotle, On Generation and Corruption 2.9, 336b6-9

I am not a photographer, but realized that I had collected an array of snapshots throughout the seasons at the same location atop Grandad Bluff in La Crosse, WI.
