I love looking at Nature’s beauty and drama…. sometimes delicate and serene… sometimes awesome and overwhelming. But always so much bigger than we are. And fascinating! So, today we salute nature through photography and those who dedicate their lives to capturing the glory on film.
We likely know the work of some of the “greats.” Think of amazing landscape photographers like Max Riva from the Netherlands or America’s Ted Gore… National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore, adventure photographer Jimmy Chin, the world-famous Marina Cano, and the utterly amazing landscape photographer Marc Adamus. I love it all! When I capture a scene or a moment, I do so merely with my cell phone, although I have dreamt of an “eyebrow camera” since childhood, so I could instantly snap any scene I see. We need not be famous, nor professional. We simply need to enjoy. The video hails from our ranch in North Carolina, where the deer are plentiful. (And I never tire of photographing them.) So, if you’ve taken a nature photo lately that you’d be willing to share, go ahead and do so. Sharing the beauty is a great way to salute Nature Photography Day.
