  3. Wow wonderful imagery!

  4. I immediately felt like being in all the places covered here. Fantastic photos! Shared on our blog. 🙂

  5. Fantastic tribute to nature, Jane. I could see these shots and their captions as a perfect calendar for any nature lover (or any lover of photography!).

  6. Yet another great series and you timed it perfectly…

    The single word captions with each image is really interesting and as you said, we need to consider every day as earth day …

    Thanks again for sharing 🙂

  7. You could go on and on, right? 🙂 I appreciate that Gary Snyder quote…and the Nature Conservancy’s been a favorite organization for many years. I’m wondering where the photo captioned “Wonder” was taken? Well done, Jane!

  8. Such beautiful reminders of how precious our earth is, Jane. “Love” made me smile!

  9. love these ‘breathtaking’ shots and all of the words!! gorgeous post!!

  10. Jane! What an amazing post and such wonderful pictures. Marvel indeed. What an amazing shot.

  11. Jane, your images are spectular, hard to pick and favorite, and also love your quotes. Thank you for sharing your work!!

  12. Your photos captured the divine glory of our earth so perfectly, Jane, and your words and quotes, the message, were also much appreciated. I studied and enjoyed each photo, and loved them all, but that one of the lupine with the suspended bumblebee took my breath away. Thanks so much for sharing your gifts, and the gifts of our planet.

    • Hi Jet, Thank you for your wonderful response and coming from your keen eye, it means a lot. I was hiking on Matt Davis Trail last week and found those Lupines buzzing with bees and spent a lot of time observing and photographing their busy lives. Fascinating. I’m pleased you enjoyed my tribute to Mother Earth and also for spending some time with the work. Much appreciated. 🌎

  13. You’ve captured our planet beautifully, Jane! Love every picture. Thanks for taking me on this virtual tour. xoxo

  14. The Earth is the most versatile beauty.

  15. What a brilliant display, Jane! Awesome.

  16. So many great photos – a wonderful tribute to our planet. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Beautiful set. And good thoughts. Maybe the world needs more landscape photographers, it might give the land more respect.

  18. A remarkable collection, Jane. Both words and photos are beautiful and very moving…
    Yes, Every day is Earth Day! 🙂

  32. Truly some of your best work in this Earth Day tribute. The dolphin playing, a real fave. (Kiawah Island?)

  33. Wow what an incredibly beautiful tribute to our planet! I am so sad about what is happening to our world. I just wish we could do more. Thank you for this gorgeous tribute. Have you ever watched “Out Planet” or the “Blue Planet”? It is an incredible documentary on the state of our amazing world. Happy Earth Day Jane!

    • Thanks so much, Nicole. Yes, I have seen them and the message couldn’t be more important than it is today. I’m glad you enjoyed this and I hope you are out there loving nature right now! 🌏🌈

  34. No matter how we might explore ‘outer’ space, humankind will always have a need to return home.

  36. Well said with great images. Happy Earth Day,

  37. It’s like the Ode to Joy in images! Beautiful captures with great quotes. Hoping some inspiration has rubbed off on me. 🌺

  38. Very fine post!; every day should be Earth Day!.. 🙂

  39. What a versatile photographer you are! These images are awe-inspiring. I particularly like the rock formations, which remind us of the Earth itself and our scale; maybe how we should remember that we are small and Earth is huge, and keep to our place. Your rhino image too is incredible. Happy Earth Day, Jane.

  40. Jane, with each image of yours I viewed, I literally said out load ….. OMG this is beautiful.

  41. Great images for your message, Jane. The first one is an attention-grabber.
    Ω

  42. What great sentiments describing each photo.. all my favorites!

  43. Some real beauties in this one Jane, and I really like the way you organized the post with the one-word titles. Terrific
