Nature Photography Day | June 15 @ Chassahowitzka WMA

“Nature Photographers have that unconditional passion to seek adventures surrounding nature. They strive to bring that curiosity to entice every viewer, they capture visual imprints that can never be destroyed, they have the ability to pull inspirations from every angle that nature has created and have the dedication, drive, and ambition to show the power and strength of the wild.” Alice Mary Herden | Nature Photographer
