April 22, 2015 – Happy Earth Day from the White Mountains of New Hampshire USA! Earth Day is an annual day founded by US Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970. Many consider Earth Day to be the birth of the modern environmental movement. The purpose of this day is to celebrate and create awareness for the environment. If you have never heard of Earth Day take some time to read up on the history and importance of Earth Day here,

As a photographer, I use imagery to create awareness for the environment, and to promote responsible land stewardship in the White Mountains. I think Earth Day is an excellent educational tool that helps influence all generations to care about the environment, and I think we should celebrate it everyday, not just once a year.

Environmental activism continues to grow, and more and more people are getting involved every year. Those upsetting human impact scenes I show you from time to time help create awareness for the environment and promote events like Earth Day. They also help me realize the importance of protecting beautiful places like the ones included in this article. I do believe education plays an important role in the environmental movement.

Take some time off today, even if it's only for a half an hour, to enjoy the town forest in your area. Turn off your cell phone, and wander through the forest listening to the sounds of nature. As you enjoy the solitude of the forest, remember we are the only ones who can protect the environment.
