Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #47: Five Elements

This view of the cathedral of Palma de Mallorca from the Parc de la Mar provides a beautiful blend of the five traditional Chinese elements, metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.

Metal: the statue in the foreground

Wood: the palm trees growing in the Mediterranean climate

Water: the park’s large pond, which I think is fed from the Bay of Palma

Earth: the stone and bricks of the walls

Fire: This one is a stretch!  My family has a joke that every modern art sculpture (no matter the name or subject) actually depicts a flame.  So, here we have a statue of a flame to represent the element of fire. Ha!

You can find more elements at the original Lens-Artist challenge.
