Post a beautiful nature picture


Recommended Posts


In my other thread, I just posted a picture of my former crabapple tree in bloom with a male House Finch in breeding feathers. I consider it beautiful.

You are invited to post a beautiful nature picture you’ve taken. Something that when you saw it, it made you feel happy for a moment in time.

Betty

Nice idea Betty!  I don't shoot a lot of nature scenes but wish I had done more over the years, very satisfying when I have had the chance! These three places brought me joy beyond words to be there

Nice idea - lovely photos just for the sake of it.

 

Two from me, very large and very small

 

The sun rising behind icicles in the French Alps Stock Photo
 
Sunrise behind icicles in the French Alps. We had got everything ready to sleep out under the stars down on the glacier prior to climbing our mountain the next day. The weather was a bit threatening though so we decided to chance it with dossing down in the cable station. Sleeping in the Midi cable station is not allowed and it depends on the night guardian. Some will revel in their power and throw you out into the night. We were lucky, our guy just made sure that we didn't put our sleeping bags so they blocked the passage. So we had a luxury night in the warm. We were all awake early to get going and when we went out to look at the weather we were confronted with this superb scene, a sun rising into a clear blue sky
 with these lovely icicles to frame it all. A treasured alpine memory.

I was with my wife at her mum's house when the conversation turned to some particularly feminine subjects. Beating a hasty retreat I grabbed my camera bag and headed for the safety of the garden. We had had a little shower and I whiled away a pleasant half hour shooting the raindrops.

Nice idea. This would be a good time to get out alone in the woods and fields and do some uplifting nature photography.

These are Vermilion Lakes, probably best known photographer spot in Banff vicinity.  Most evenings there will be many people with tripods here & often they do classes as well.  Living nearby I made couple of pics here too, but never a killer.   Here is winter theme:

Lovely idea!

 

While a lot of Western Australia is very dry, we have some wetter areas with tall forest in the south-west. In this photo the tall trees are karri trees, and these forests are full of bird song high up in the canopy:

In 2015 I travelled to Bhutan which is a beautiful country of mountains, valleys and forests. This scene is in western Bhutan:

All of these are outstanding. Keep them coming folks!

I like the birds and critters, too. And yes, John, this would do our souls good to get out in nature with our cameras. The walls are closing in.

From a walk we did on Thursday 12th March, last one before the lockdown....

I've definitely got a dog or two in this fight.

Mount Ruapehu, North Island, NZ.

BTW the dark smudges on the slopes are from the bush fires in Australia. It's usually pristine white.

Yes! The Vermillion Lakes...loved that spot...and yes, there were a few photographers nearby while I was shooting.  This is another shot from that evening.

If we can stretch "nature" a bit, this is one of my favourite images here or anywhere for that matter- the Douro at Porto.

Just an excuse to show a bridge (tick) made of concrete (tick).
