the first one reminds of dendritic minerals, like dendritic agate or limestone

There has always been such beauty in death and decay hasn't there. My response is a little confused though, as on one hand these images are beautiful and on the other not so nice.
I think there is a kind of budhist/ spiritual message in there about impermanance and what doesn't die. ie, no matter what we do to life or how we try and kill it, we can't and it remains beautiful....maybe?

If it will remain beautiful forever , it will be without us to enjoy it. :(
