Share your vision of our magnificent Earth through your lens.

“The Earth is what we all have in common.” Wendell Berry
I have always regarded nature with reverence, feeling most at peace with my feet (and hands!) in the dirt, and the outdoors in my lungs. My most vivid memories of childhood center around outdoor exploration: collecting unique rocks, seeking insects and spiders under fallen logs, cultivating a love and respect for the environment that is a major defining characteristic of who I am today.
During a recent trip to Ireland, I stole a few moments for myself at one of the lovely lakes in Glendalough, and came across the tiny, shimmering stone in the photo below. I had the sentimental thought that nature was sending me a message: “I love you, too.”
