A ruined classical colonnade in the long abandoned grounds of a large country estate. The main house burned down during the second world war and the entire estate, including many outbuildings, gatehouses, garden features and follies were all left to fend for themselves against the inexorable advances of mother nature. They put up a good fight and the battle continues even now but in the end there can only be one winner. Once neatly cut lawns bloom and disappear under a chaotic profusion of greenery and the stonework loosens and tumbles as the creepers do their work. In the end this is the way all of human creation will go, we think we are all powerful but we are nothing next to her.
