Natures snaps beautiful to you?

April 25, 2007 8:52pm CST
I've always been fond of the way nature looks, doesn't matter if it's just a forest I just like it and I can normally find more than just that to appreciate. Natures slightly unappreciated I feel, I hate when people litter or say "forests should be cut down" or "the peak district needs hotels" it's pretty much untrue in my opinion, some thing we all need a wonderful place where we can go and relax away from the busyness of the world. Do you take photos of nature to remember the wonderful scenes which you have seen? ~Joey P.s I've only recently started and it's great fun, it's also nice to be able to see them again. =)

Its funny as my daughter and I were fascinated by the brightness of the Moon tonight. It kept coming in and out of focus behind the clouds which were brightly lit infront of the Moon. I was going to take a photo and regrettably didn't. I did take a photo not so long ago of some black clouds that had formed over us. It was amazing and looked like the end of the world the way they covered the sky. I do love a sunset and have taken photos of these when they are beautiful. Its such a wonderful sight to see and living in the Uk, we do have some amazing sunsets.

Indeed we do. I've always loved watching red skies form and especially how they spread. It's amazing how much this world has which isn't appreciated. I'd take scenery over a tall towers any day. =) Thanks for your comments ittakesallsorts, ~Joey

I love taking pictures of nature. Our world is so beautiful, we need to appreciate the beauty of it. I like to go back and look at old pictures, it helps bring back the memories.

Hi Joey, I agree, nature is unappreciated and taken for granted. I think it is important to preserve nature not only for the environment(global warming, the ozone, etc...) but for ourselves. I think Thoreau was on to something when he moved to the woods for a few years while the rest of society lead quiet lives in desperation. I do enjoy taking pictures of nature, especially when it is a new place that I have never been and will probably not visit again.

Same here. I took a few last September on holiday, apart further away from where I normally go but the beach looked very nice, especially with the greenland /wasteland behind it. Kudos, ~Joey

You are right. I live in a sub-urban of a growing city. Whenever I travel into the city, I feel uneasy. There seem to have not much space for nature in the city. Yet, nature in its own is the best. The pictures are the best too. I have started taking pictures of the nature along time ago. However, I am always laugh at because nobody can understand why I prefer to take pictures of animals and plants than people. No, I'm not going to stop just because I want to get praises from people who don't know nature.

i totally agree with you, how this world needs a bit less urbanization and a bit more of natural space. its pretty hard to find unadulterated forest space nowadays, we all have to do our part to keep the last virgin forests from being fallen because or some new urban development project

I love nature just like you. Yes, I do take many pictures. I do not like it when they cut down trees. Nature is a treasure to be enjoyed.

Madeira island photo I took - Photo I took in Madeira Island-Portugal
I love taking photos of nature, but unfortunately I don't have a camera of my own, though I really wanted one, but I've lent a camera 2 times to take some photos, I'll attach a photo of a scenery in Madeira Island to my post. I think it's a pity that where I live it's being overcome by highways, apartments... Even a place marked as a green area, no building someone managed to build apartments...

I love to be in natural settings. Walking in the woods is a fun thing to do. I once had a small cabin in the woods and it was marvelous. Few people around for miles and always peaceful. The wind blowing through the trees and rustling the leaves with a partly blue sky overhead on an early autumn afternoon....wonderful. Did I forget to mention the landscapes and the flowers and the animals. I have visited many national parks and state parks and always enjoy the scenery. They could blow up all the malls for all I care...lol. And plant trees where they used to be...

I agree with what you have said. And I love seeing nature photography as well. Haven't gotten around to doing it myself though but have thought about it. I love seeing the beautiful photos. And as you said, I don't think we appreciate the beauty in the nature around us. It brings me instant happiness to see such photos. :)

Many forests were in my country cut down to be taken by his wood, as a result now everywhere the flood happened. Yes we must be able to conserve the forest in order to the flood not happen.

I was recently on a trip to the mountain side in my country. There were scenes that were so appealing to the soul it was amazing. The problem i think you state is of those people who have been use to the city life and not been in a natural period for a long time. I stayed there for 2 weeks no TV, no cellular phone, no office nothing. It was so refershing and relaxing. Nature is amazing we took a lot of photographs and at the same time had a lot of fun. I saw snow for the first time and I loved it!!

Yes I love taking pictures on my walks, especially now summer is coming -I like to catch the way the light comes through the trees. It is such a shame how people trash the beautiful places we have left, leaving rubbish everywhere.

I always prefer to take pictures of nature and the natural scenery when I visit places, I think 90% of the photos I've taken were of scenery and looking back on them reminds me of being there again. Especially when some of the places you might not get to see again in person.

Yes I did that alot when I went on my travels last year I went up to Scotland to tour by car and camping for four weeks, beautiful scenery and amazing landscapes, lochs, mountains, wildlife, it took my breath away and it was so beautiful. I loved especially the sunsets and the flora and fauna. Superb! I have them all on my computer now as a constant reminder of my visit to bonnie Scotland.

I do love taking pictures. Getting a digital camera was the best thing I have done. SInce I got mine I take more photos and don't wast money printing the ones that aren't relaly good. I do enjoy nature and have gotten some great photos of nature in my life. I think the best nature photo I haver ever taken was at the Grand Canyon, but I guess that is not saying much when starting with such a beautiful canvas.
