cee’s fun foto challenge: earth

This week’s photo challenge by Cee is to show off a few photographs of the Chinese Element of Earth.

Earth/Harvest: Clay, Rock, Dust, Sand, Mud, Crystal, Powder, Shadow, Space, Darkness, Gravity, Bone, Silicon.


The Chinese think Earth is associated with the qualities of patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work and stability. The earth element is also nurturing and seeks to draw all things together with itself, in order to bring harmony, rootedness and stability. Other attributes of the earth element include ambition, stubbornness, responsibility and long-term planning. In pathology, the earth can represent selfishness and self-centeredness. (source: wiki)

    Earth – in Sanskrit is called Prithvi. The lower essential nature of Earth is fixed and immobile; the higher, mysterious, mobile, and virtual. It is the earth-principle creating habitations of physical form for the soul; the material energy in the state of cohesion called earth or the solid state; and the physical consciousness. from …..The Panchabhoot concept.
