THE BEAUTY OF NATURE

Arguably, Nature delights and it heals. The beauty of Nature brings out the kid in each one of us. It fills us with awe and wonder and helps us to find our own place in the universe. Over the years, I have learned to claim it as part of myself.

Like the fundamental rights and freedoms, you enjoy the beauty of nature while at the same time you are being given the responsibility to protect and conserve it for the future generations.

The two quotes by Sir David Frederick Attenborough of Britain, the greatest naturalist of our time remind all of us of our natural duty to protect the environment. He said: “It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.”

“The question is , are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?”

We appreciate nature through our five basic senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell ant touch. Appreciating nature reminds us all of the Creator of it all.

I have been an amateur photographer and an outdoor fanatic for as long as I can remember and I had the privilege to take numerous photographs.

I am sharing a few of those which have made me shriek, “Wow!” in delight and amazement.

The golden sunrise

The Cascading waters
The rugged Table Mountains dominating the Cape Town horizon.
The barren desert.
The rolling grasslands- the Savannah
The Amaryllis in bloom in my small garden in Botswana
Are n’t these rocks by the ocean beautiful ?
A mother and its puppy in the back garden

Do you have any spectacular views that you caught with your camera and would love to share with us?
