Earth Day in Photos

Sky Blue Sky

Hello and happy Earth day! Earlier this month I went to the Bucksbaum Lecture at Drake University where National Geographic photographer James Balog spoke about climate change and more specifically all the melting glaciers around the world that he has the privilege to photograph. I highly recommend you check out his work about melting glaciers by clicking here. It’s astonishing to think that most of what he’s captured over the last several years has melted due to rising temperatures.

Last year I posted about ways you can reduce your carbon footprint but this year I’m more in the mood to motivate you to preserve the Earth through my own favorite photos. Some of these were taken close to home and some far away. It’s pretty amazing what we have in front of us that we take for granted. We only have one place to call home and there is no back-up plan. Be kind to our Earth today and every day!
