Here are 23 amazing Photographs from Winners of Nature Conservancy Awards 2021

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 without Nature and other living beings no matter how much technology we have. But sometimes, people forget to have a look at Nature for even a while due to the hustle and bustle of the never-ending busy life. For that problem, there is one simple answer! That is photography.

Photography can do silent wonders in the viewer’s mind. It is like a universal language with no boundaries to express feelings and ideas. And also, it is a powerful tool to increase awareness among people about serious issues like conserving Nature.

The Nature Conservancy Photo Contest is one of the most famous photography competitions which focus mainly on conserving Nature which is held yearly. But with the pandemic situation and travel restrictions around the world last year, they could not hold it. Fortunately, the competition is back with an amazing collection of stunning, breathtaking photographs from every corner of the world. With amazing photography skills and great timing, we can capture magical moments of Nature around us, and here are some examples of them.
