45 Free Nature Pictures That Showcase The Beauty of Mother Earth

Last Updated on March 8, 2022

Trees, flowers, mountains, lakes, and wildlife – they all make up what we like to call nature.

From the Latin word ‘natura’, the word literally means ‘birth’. In etymology, it is used to express everything correlating to plants, animals, and basically anything that develops out of its own accord in the world.

In other terms, nature can be also be coined as the ‘physical world’ or the ‘natural world’. The opposite of this are artificial elements, like those manufactured by humans.

Nature can also refer to weather, animals, or geological processes such as erosion, volcanic explosions, and earthquakes as the result of tectonic plates moving.

That’s because they are all naturally occurring, happening even without man’s intervention. They may seem scary, but these phenomena have been in existence way before mankind was known to have walked the earth.

In fact, the earth is so far the only planet known to sustain this kind of life that we know today. This is all thanks to the atmosphere – in particular, the ozone layer, that protects the earth from harmful rays from the sun.

This too, is part of nature. Aside from shielding life on earth from damaging UV radiation, the ozone layer also traps heat, enduring temperatures do not reach extremes.

Nature is wild yet stunning. Even in the urban jungles and in the busiest metropolis, you can find evidence of its beauty. There are fiery sunsets, still ponds, and gorgeous plants everywhere. As parts of nature nurture and protect us, so should we in turn, nurture and protect it.

Today, there is a global movement to stop climate change and save the environment. Even big companies are in on making a change. For taking care of nature means preserving mankind’s future as well.
