“I See Trees Of Green”


ou’ve probably guessed the theme of this issue by now, nature. You’ve probably also noticed how much shorter this editors letter is compared to the previous issues, well I really want people to do less reading and more admiring of images so I thought I’d talk less, anyway nature. Nature in the sense of animals, natural plants and food, but also what influence mankind has had on nature. Cutting down tree for buildings, using up fossil fuels, pollution and so forth, bet you didn’t expect to see that in this issue. These topics wont be covered on a National Geographic level but just enough for you to enjoy the images made by many talented artists. Also make sure you visit the website to vote on the topic of the next issue, I’m really hoping this goes well.

On The Front
love this picture, mainly because to me it looks like mother nature crying out, but also because of the atmosphere around the image; the many moving leaves, the direction of the branches, and even the small hands trying to pull the woman down. Fantastic work by Artur Szygulski and the prefect image for the front cover of this issue. I only wish he gave the image a different title, I’m not sure ‘Dream of flying’ suits it as much as mother nature crying out but that’s just my opinion.

Natural World
It’s easy to ignore nature around us in our busy lives, but if we just take the time to stop and look around, we can really appreciate the beauty of this nature we all take for granted.

Animal Kingdom
I’m no scientist but I know animals help to keep world in balance, from bees helping plants with pollination to carnivores eating herbivores to prevent over population. But all science aside these creatures truly are spectacular to look at, just see for yourself.

Then came man who ended up replacing parts of nature with horrible concrete structures, replacing the clean air with pollution and using up a lot of natural resources.

And on the sixth day He created...Even though sophisticated and intelligent creatures, human beings are also animals and as such have all the natural beauty that animals have, maybe more. That’s why it is always impressive when an artist models a human.

Fruit & Wine
Fruits are one of many natural foods which we all know the benefits of. As for the wine, well it was pretty difficult to come across an image of fruit without them, and they add a little artistic touch to the images.
