“When the storm was predicted, and it was carrying the first ever red warning for the south coast, I knew I had to find a spot to record it - this was going to be big! I got there reasonably ear...
There is a well-known saying that goes, "Consequences don’t mean anything, perspective is everything" and there is no other saying that is more true than that. The incredible images Manuelo Bececco has taken of forests are a very testament to the power of perspective.
Our perspective on the world has an impact on how we feel, think and how we react to different circumstances. The surrounding we are in can also be considered in the same way. Let's try to look at the surroundings around us from a different angle. We can create a completely new, distinctive, and enhanced version of it.

In the Netherlands, during the Spring, the temperature drops below zero on some occasional nights. Those are sleepless nights for the fruit growers since they have to spray all the fruit trees with water to save their flowers and buds. Even though it sounds strange, it actually protects the flowers. The water freezes around the flowers creating a protective ice layer and it protects the flowers from really destructive 'frost'.
In the morning when the sunlight floods, the ice melts and the flowers awake unharmed. The frozen water...
Storm photography is one of the most challenging genres of photography. One has to be eminent with readiness, timing, planning and improvising other than the basic photography skills. The commitment is also a must and above all, he or she has to save their life itself in a very challenging and dangerous situation.
Mike Olbinski, a well-known storm photographer created the annual Storm Photos of the Year contest to recognize the hard work of storm photographers and make the public more aware of storm photography. The offcial website says,
"Our purpose in creating Storm Photos of the Year, or what we affectionately call “The Stormys”, is to reward incredible storm photographers around the globe for their hard work every year with a photography contest made specifically for them! Fro...
For the rare opportunity to photograph Japan's beautiful plum trees blossom, most of us would have to travel hundreds, thousands, and maybe tens of thousands of kilometres. But for Hidenobu Suzuki, all it takes is stepping outside his house. And he is kind enough to share that beauty with all of us with his beautiful photographs.
Streets carpeted with pink petals, forests blanketed in "sakura snow," and lines of luscious cherry trees are all captured in his magnificent photographs. However, the annual pink phenomenon does not last long. The delicate flowers of cherry blossom trees barely last a week or two after they begin to bloom before the petals fall to the ground. The photographer seems to be quick enough to record the beauty before it is gone.

Hidenobu Suzuki is a talented photographer who has consistently shown us the natural beauty of Japan. And now, he wants us to enjoy the rainy season in Japan through his lens. We all have to agree to the fact that Japan is a place that never fails to amaze us with its beauty. And photographers like Hidenobu Suzuki allow us to feel that beauty virtually.
His photographs are not common. They easily differ from conventional nature photographs. Almost all of Hidenobu's rainy season images look just like actual paintings. He wanted them to make people feel the same way that Japanese paintings do. It is not necessary to declare much he is successful in that attempt after seeing his photographs.

No words are enough to explain the beauty and simplicity of Nature. Once a great English writer, John Ruskin expressed the beauty of Nature as 'Nature is painting for us day after day, pictures of infinite beauty'.
If you are someone who wants a break from this busy, hectic life for a while, then just a 10 minutes walk into a jungle will give you an amazing healing feeling which will calm your soul and mind. That is what we call the magic of Nature which no one knows how happens. And most probably earth is the only planet which is gifted with such a beautiful nature and living beings. So as human beings, what we should do is protect and conserve this beauty for another million years as it is.
That is because we are also a part of it, and no human can survive wi...
