Nature Photography Day
Nature Photography Day is celebrated on 15th of June every year. The Nature Photography day is celebrated to honour the photographers who are passionate in making Nature Photography. Nature is always a mind relaxing one and nowadays Nature is getting destroyed for the sake of human beings. There are many people who go for a natural adventure for the reason to capture the beauty of Nature through the camera lens.
Nature always wears the colors of the spirit. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
History of Nature Photography Day

The association started with just 100 nature photography enthusiasts but now it has more members associated to it. It was in the year 2006, the first Nature Photography Day was celebrated. The Nature Photographers together celebrated the day first on June 15, 2006. Since then the day is being celebrated each and every year.
