Grab your camera and take a moment to explore the outdoors for Nature Photography Day on June 15th. Head to the backyard, park, or another place close to take a walk, hike, or ride a bike and capture Mother Nature at her finest.
This day was designated by The North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) to promote the enjoyment of nature photography and to explain how images have been used to advance the cause of conservation and protect plants, wildlife, and landscapes locally and worldwide.
Some of my most favorite nature images come from our travels across the globe. It’s amazing to see all the beauty our land has to offer. Here are some photos above I especially love from our travels.
Now, you don’t need to travel the world to find nature that takes your breath away. What inspires you? Share your nature photos over on our Facebook Fan Page I’d love to see them. While it’s great to take photos most people leave them on their camera roll or in a box somewhere to collect dust and become a distant memory. Rather take these moments in time and turn them into decor displayed around a home. One of the easiest ways to embrace your neighborhoods surroundings or inspire visitors into your home to get lost in nature is to showcase it. We are always using nature in our staging and decor projects. Here are three ways to use your nature photos in your home:
Take your photos one step further and frame them. Use frames that already match your home’s design style. You can of course — mix and match materials, frame sizes and use different images to create a story that tells about the lifestyle of this homeowner. Click on any image below to learn more.
Use your favorite nature photograph on fabric. It’s easy to reprint the image onto a pillow, panel curtains, even on bedding and throw pillows to add personality and show off nature’s simplistic beauty.
Why not take your image and turn it into a work of art. By painting, watercolor or even drawing the image, you’re adding a personal touch on that scene of nature and adding your own interpretation of what you see. You can use wild colors and make the nature photo as abstract or realistic as you’d like. Check out all this amazing art from Pier 1 Imports, click on any of the images to shop now.
