15 Shots Proving We’re Nothing but Grains of Sand in This World

Humans have lived on Earth for millenniums, but it still feels like there’s a lot for us to learn. Time and time again, different phenomena prove to us that the world is filled with powerful, mysterious forces we have yet to comprehend.

We at Bright Side love looking at the big world around us, so we’re sharing these photos that remind us just how small we really are.
