Claude Monet once said, "The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration."
If nature photography is anything, it is inspirational. It's the kind that inspires you to finally plan that trip to Alaska, the kind that gently reminds you to look outside your window, and the kind that makes you want to save up some extra cash to buy that nice DSLR. Because through the eyes of a photographer nature really comes alive. The skies show off their gorgeous array of colors, the water lays still so that it can display a spectacular reflection, and animals seem to strike beautiful poses like they are our friend.
