A great photograph can transport you across the world, under the sea, above the clouds. Photos stir you to action, make your heart swell, or even break it. At The Nature Conservancy, photographs tell our story.
Do you love nature photography? You aren’t alone. Here in our Seattle office we’ve even got a staff photo club to nurture our connection to photography. See some of their photos here.
The Washington Chapter photo club started back in 2010. A range of colleagues—ecologists, cartographers, preserve stewards, writers and volunteers—regularly display their latest work on our office walls. This month, the club has gathered some beautiful shots along the theme of “winter silhouettes” and now you can enjoy them too.

These photos often don’t convey a clear story and leave part of the image up to the imagination of the viewer.
We’d love to see your nature photography, too, so here’s where you come in. It’s so easy to share your photos and the stories behind them. Here are some easy ways:
