Celebrating Mother Earth!

Happy Earth Day everyone! I am all about this holiday that pays tribute to oft-neglected and overly-abused Mother Earth, without which we wouldn't be here. As is the case with so many holidays, I truly believe that the values we celebrate today need be honored all throughout the year. But Earth Day is a great time to come together, educate one another, and work to keep our world as healthy and clean as possible!

In an effort to celebrate this day, I thought I'd leave you with a few photographs from one of the world's favorite photographers, Ansel Adams. This man was a true artistic talent and a nature lover who did so much to protect our natural spaces. Adams is truly one of my heroes and I think today is as apt a time as any to share some of his work. Here are just a very select few of my favorites from this extraordinary man's collection.

Frozen Lake and Cliffs, Sierra Nevada

Aspens, New Mexico

Monolith, The Face of Half Dome

I'm planning on getting a lot of gardening done today as I finally have most of my vegetables and supplies together for the backyard garden. How do you plan to recognize Earth Day?
