“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. … There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” It’s a beautiful quote by Rachel Carson from Silent Spring. The wording is extraordinary, but the truth is that nature’s beauty is simply too exquisite to put into words.
If you’ve ever just stared into the sunset without saying a word, ever swam into the ocean, ever ran down the trails of a virgin forest, then you know this. Nature is the ultimate artist, the most brilliant painter and the most creative director.
And the best thing about it is that it exists everywhere you look. There’s beauty in every part of the world, you just have to pay attention and look for it.
Nature will always find a way to outdo itself and surprise those who are lucky enough to stand in its light. The planet we call home is fascinating. Moving around the sun at 67,000 miles (107,826 km) per hour, it always finds new ways to heal and recycle itself, because unfortunately us humans aren’t doing a very good job taking care of it.
As said in the beginning, words are often not enough when talking about the place we are lucky to name our home, so here are some amazing photos that show just how incredible Mother Nature really is.
