re: earlier comments - whether or not you believe in a Creator/God/Supreme Being/whatever, you have to wonder: how did all this amazing Universe come into being? Is there a beginning, middle, end, to it?
All the great philosophical musings begin with these basic questions. It seems to me, there is nothing random about the Universe. Pattern, order, and incredible complexity abound, even amidst apparent chaos.
These photos are a testimony to that.
