Happy Earth Day: 20 Photos That Celebrate Nature’s True Beauty

By Johanna - 4 min read

We’re celebrating Earth Day with this round-the-world adventure of an image collection!

“50 years from now what will they say about us here? Did we care for the water and the fragile atmosphere?”
– Prince, Planet Earth (2007)

Today, April 22, is Earth Day. Launched as a movement to give planet earth a voice and to make environmental concerns front page news back in 1970, it is celebrated in more than 193 countries. Over 1 billion earthlings are getting involved this year – and this is my contribution. I curated this collection of planet earth images to celebrate Earth Day 2016.

20 pictures that show us just how beautiful nature really is:
