CALL for ENTRIES: Nature Undisturbed 2013
Every once in a while, I get the urge to live off the land. Why disturb nature with factories to process food when I grow, raise and prepare my own? It only takes watching a documentary on ice fishing in Alaska or beheading a chicken down South, and I quickly get over the urge. A backyard garden will have do. This next show wants to see how you capture nature…undisturbed. Don’t miss this chance.
Check out this Call for Entries from Serenbe Photography Center (Palmetto, GA) for the 5th showing of Nature, Undisturbed. Here’s a chance to show your work and help out nature conservation at the same time. Bonus…they often sell a significant portion of the work! Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES:
Nature Undisturbed is a celebration of the natural world. The show brings together a diverse collection of photography showcasing the wonders of nature that many don’t take the time to see. It is the hope of the show creators that after viewing the photography, you are inspired to get out on the not-so-beaten path. Perhaps you happen to take along a camera to capture the light through the leaves and continue to enjoy that day each time you view the photo.
This is the show that brings the outside in for all to enjoy.
The exhibition showcases simple, majestic, beauty in nature, wildlife & local landscapes. Each unique image echos the sentiment “a picture is worth a thousand words,” a powerful reinforcement of the importance of greenspace & habitat protection for future generations of people & wildlife.
