Nature Photography Day 2023: The beauty of nature is so vast that the lens in your eye can’t capture it whole alone, you need to see it through another lens too. Your cameras are the perfect way to go about capturing the vastness and endless beauty of the natural world. The lush green forests, the indefinite ocean, the minute details on the rocks, the gorgeous rainbows, sunrises and sunsets, the wise aging trees etc., are all part of the natural ecosystem and you have a chance to encapsulate all of it in just a picture. Taking in so much breathtaking beauty at once is a little hard especially when you are awestruck by it, which is why it is important to have your cameras out in order to not miss a moment of this divine world entrusted to us.
