June 15, 2014 – National Nature Photography Day
Nature Photography Day was created in 2006 by the North American Nature Photography Association. It is an annual event intended to promote conservation and the enjoyment of nature photography. Today is a day to grab your camera and photograph nature. You can read more on the history of the event at the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) website here. NANPA is also hosting a Nature Photography Day event on their Facebook page.
Even if you do not have own a camera, I encourage you to get out today and explore the natural environment around your town. Nature has a way of freeing the mind from the everyday stresses of life.
This year I will be celebrating Nature Photography Day by shooting along one of the many hiking trails near my home here in Lincoln. I will also spend some time relaxing on the beautiful East Branch of the Pemigewasset River. If you are stuck working all day today you can view the natural environment of the White Mountains here. And Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers out there!
Happy image making…
