Walks in Nature: Interesting Photos and Quotes

Nature pictures

Have you ever noticed how fantastic you feel after a walk, even if you had to drag yourself outside? Walking has been one of my best joy-boosters for many years. After a good walk I feel energized, motivated, and often times inspired to write (like right now).

I have (what I consider) the luxury of living in the woods. I have a tendency to take photos while walking. A LOT of photos!

Since my camera is filled with photos of the nature and wildlife that I come across on my walks or while just enjoying the outdoors, I thought I’d share some of my favorites. And since I love good quotes, I’m sharing some nature-inspired quotes, too.

I’m not a photographer, but I do enjoy trying to capture Mother Nature’s beauty!

    1. Hi Sarah, peaceful is a great word to describe the nature where I walk. I always seem to arrive back home feeling more calm and at peace. Walking really has so many benefits for the mind and body. Do you have any type of green space, such as a park, in your neighborhood?

  2. Beautiful! Something I’ve really enjoyed from quarantine and social distancing and taking more time to enjoy the nature around us. <3 The birds, the pond, the trees, and my garden.

    1. Yes! Being outside definitely helps to feel less isolated. I’m glad you mentioned gardens – so many people I know are taking extra time to enjoy their gardens this year.

  3. Thanks. I enjoyed the pictures. Sometimes I forget to slow down long enough to snap a few shots

    1. Can’t wait to take a walk with you. We have lots of fawns this year so maybe you can snap a few pics.
