Nature photography is one of the most beautiful art forms in the world. But, it can be very difficult, mainly because the photographer rarely has much control over the situation. Even so, there’s something liberating about being in nature. Going outside in the sunshine and fresh air can actually boost energy and it’s good for the body, mind, and soul.

Take a walk and take your camera along! Photography is the perfect diversion during this time of social distancing. With more than 20 miles of scenic walking trails on 2 expansive campuses, resident photographers have an amazing opportunity to spend time photographing the great outdoors.

The photos below were taken in our community by passionate resident photographers.
