Even after Earth Day, nothing beats scrolling through these images over a warm cup of tea with classical music playing in the background. :3
Thank you so much for creating this; it's truly a stunning tribute to our amazing planet. Hopefully this will inspire the nature lover in us all to take further action to protect this beautiful world- not just on Earth Day, but every day- so that future generations may have an equal opportunity to appreciate it in all of its glory.

... If only all the museums of the world decided to organize an exhibition with these photos...
I don't know why, I think it could change a lot in the mind of people.

This is amazing. A pure beauty. No need to go in other worlds... The magic is right before our eyes. ♥
