Tunnel Vision

There is a story here. Can you guess what it its before looking at the photo below?  The story is about a perceived need for expediency.  It's someone's decision to actually think the look of urgency and inconsistent workmanship in one section might not impede the overall perception of wonder and mystery of the whole.   

This is a story of us thinking we always need to 'help' mother nature. It betrays a frantic eagerness to make a natural wonder 'last' – to resist change – to fix what isn't broken – to think that permanency is of a higher value than aesthetic . We decide that we know best, and see no value in vulnerability or the possibility of impermanence – that safety and convenience are more important than the humbling awesomeness of reality.
