Travel theme: The Four Elements

This post is in response to Travel theme: The Four Elements on Where’s my backpack? blog. Really interesting post and challenge, I suggest you to check it out!

During ages scientists, philosophers and so on, have settled theories and believes on the four classical elements, some are really close to each other some really out from the pack. Let’s take the classical concept for the four elements, which may be originate from the Babylonian mythology “the Enûma Eliš, a text written between the 18th and 16th centuries BC, describes five personified cosmic elements: the sea, earth, sky, fire, and wind.” (cit. font: Classical element Wikipedia)

So here are my shots… Enjoy 😉
