20 Stunning Photos That Capture The Relationship Between Nature, Animals And Humans

As city dwellers, we are surrounded by skyscrapers and roads. Gradually, we have forgotten our connection with nature and others species. To remind us of our unbreakable relationship with nature and animals, some talented photographers use their cameras to capture the beauty of nature. Apart from freezing the moments of some powerful natural phenomena, their photos also feature the interesting side of wildlife and breathtaking landscapes. Let’s take a look and appreciate their efforts:

                It's taken me several early mornings to develope this lighting technique. Using high powered underwater strobes place beneath the blue bottles I hit them with a burst of light, the crystal clear deep water reflects no light but the bluebottles pop with that amazing electric cyan blue colour! And framed againt the the silhouette backdrop of the bay and the orange glow from the sun I think they look quite amazing wouldn't you agree? Well done mother nature you did it again!

                    I took this picture at Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan last year. The flowers are baby blue eyes and the whole number of them in the park are 4.5 millions. The best season is usually from the end of April to the first week of May. I am going to the blue universe again this year to photograph. It'll be worth just visiting the world. Camera shutter or your eye's shutter. You would be happy in this world.

                      The night before returning to Windhoek, we spent several hours at Deadveli. The moon was bright enough to illuminate the sand dunes in the distance, but the skies were still dark enough to clearly see the milky way and magellanic clouds. Deadveli means "dead marsh." The camelthorn trees are believed to be about 900 years old, but have not decomposed because the environment is so dry.

                        Calbuco Volcano is located in the lakes region south of Santiago, Chile's capital city and is one of the 10 most dangerous volcanoes in the country. After more than 40 years of inactivity, the day April 23 the volcano erupts, spewing more than 200 million tons of ash and causing the evacuation of more than 2,000 people. In the picture is seen one of the most violent moments of the eruption, which occurred in the early hours of April 24.

                                          10 Harsh But True Illustrations that Show Our Changed Society

                                          Let’s face it.  We are living in a digital age, and there is absolutely no turning back. One of the biggest influences on society these days is social media. It affects us both positively and negatively. Social media was originally designed for people to share interesting facets of their lives with their friends, but it has become so much more than what it intended to be. It is now a medium for information to pass around the globe. In many cases, people first learn about current events through Twitter or Facebook before hearing about them from conventional news sources.

                                          We also rely on technology for nearly everything we do. People these days seem as if they can’t go anywhere or do anything without their smartphones, tablets, or laptops. They need to be in constant contact with others via electronic devices.

                                          However, there is also a downside to be too connected to social media and electronic devices. We are too dependent on them, which make us oblivious to what we are doing to ourselves. Being too connected can have a negative effect on our lives and the society as a whole. Here are 10 true illustrations that show how our society is negatively impacted because of the use of technology.

                                          1. Facebook is eating away at your time.

                                          Facebook is eating away your time

                                            How much time do you usually spend each day on Facebook or other social networking sites? Is it hindering your productivity? Do you find yourself wasting time to a point where you don’t even know where it goes? If the answer is yes, Facebook might have eaten away at your time.

                                            2. We’ve become “Likeaholics.”

                                            Advertising

                                            Likeaholic

                                              When you are posting something on Facebook, are you doing it just to see how many of your friends will give it the proverbial thumbs up? This illustration shows that some people are treating “Likes” on Facebook as if it was a drug they needed to inject into their bloodstreams.

                                              3. Our electronics have priority over our lives.

                                              priorities

                                                Given a choice between your dying phone battery or you dying, which will you choose? In this case, the man in this illustration chose to charge his phone over to sustain his own life. As a society, we need to be more careful of our priorities.

                                                4. Our devices are ruining intimacy.

                                                lack of intimacy

                                                  Have you and your loved one ever spent time together where each of you is on your phone instead of communicating face-to-face with each other? Has society reached the point where we can’t even be intimate with each other without being on our phones at the same time?

                                                  Advertising

                                                  5. Families aren’t spending quality time together.

                                                    Here is a mother making holiday cookies, but what are the kids doing? They are not making cookies with their mother. Instead, every one of them has their faces buried in their own electronic devices. Television used to be what parents use to babysit their kids. Now, it’s a tablet, phone, laptop or video game that does the job.

                                                    6.  We’d rather record someone than help them.

                                                    drowning

                                                      A lot is happening in this illustration. A black man is drowning and asking for help. One person has a gun pointed at him. The other person has their iPhone pointed at him and is recording the scene, but is not interested to help this man.

                                                      7. Society is sleeping, it’s sleeping its life away.

                                                      sleeping your life away

                                                        Time is money. After we have wasted the long period of time on social media, we are losing the most valuable currency we have – our time in this world.

                                                        8.  Despite all the technology we have, we still want what someone else has.

                                                        wanting what someone else is having

                                                          There’s an old saying that goes, “The grass is always greener on the other side.” This illustration shows that despite all that we have, we are still not satisfied with our lives.

                                                          9. Sensationalism still sells.

                                                          free expression

                                                            With the information overload that exists today, the media still looks for sensationalism. Here’s a woman who feels she has something important to say, but the media only cares about her because she is naked. Would the news media still have microphones in front of her if she wasn’t standing there topless?

                                                            Advertising

                                                            10. In the end, with all of this, we are still killing the planet.

                                                            gun to mother earth

                                                              This last illustration argues that despite all of our technological gains, we are still polluting the earth as if we have a virtual gun pointed at Mother Nature. As we build bigger cities and higher technology, how much more damages can we continue to do before putting our lives at risk?
