Our world is full of amazing scenery, animals, and natural wonders. It's no secret that nature is beautiful, but when specific moments or scenery are caught on camera it brings that much more exposure (no pun intended) to how beautiful our world really is. The BigPicture Natural World Contest is a photography contest that is dedicated to capturing nature in all its glory. The goal of the contest is not only to celebrate nature and its biodiversity, but also to raise awareness of the destruction of nature and promote the protection of our environment. It is our job as citizens of this earth to play our part in keeping our environment safe and thriving. Everyone, no matter how young or old can play a part. Check out some of the stunning winning photos and finalists from the contest below!
