For as creative and clever as we humans fancy ourselves to be, the natural world often easily outdoes our efforts—without even trying.

As I roam throughout the Upper Delaware River region, peering through the portal of my camera, I sometimes encounter unusual and artful expressions of nature’s serendipitous handiwork. Here are a few to spark the imagination and to ignite interest in setting out on your own adventure.

One of the questions I’m asked a lot lately in response to my exhibit, “Impermanence: The Transitory Nature of Experience” , is, “Where do you find all those dead creatures?” My response?

“Everywhere.”

From my own yard to the forests and waters we enjoy here, evidence of the gripping cycle of life and proof of nature’s ample artistry is all around us.

Make time soon—and on a regular basis—to opt outside. Walk off that Thanksgiving feast and experience the fascinating world beyond the walls that limit our opportunities to fully engage with the natural world.
