re: Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #47: Five Elements

In Chinese Wu Xing philosophy there are five elements: Water, Earth. Fire, Wood and Metal

In Buddhist philosophy there are five elements: Water, Earth, Fire, Wind and Space (or Sky)

In this picture Water and Earth reflect a hot and  Fire-y Sky. Look closer, you might even see the Wind.

Buddhist or Wu Xing elements?

It doesn’t matter.

There are actually 118 elements in the world.

But that would be a bigger picture.
