These 16 Nature Photos Will Make You Want to Book Your Next Vacation Right Away

Photography is one of the most important parts of our society. After all, it is the capturing of moments available for anyone to see. Whether a photo was caught by accident or after hours of waiting, poised with a tripod and lights patient for the perfect shot, the resulting image will mean more than the work it took to get it. A photographer has the important duty of being aware, quick, and creative in order to capture the perfection of reality.

Regardless, the moment itself is only one part of the whole picture, so to speak. Light is perhaps one of the most important elements, as if not for the right lighting, a picture can turn from momentous to just another unclear blotch of what could have been.

The following photographers managed to hit the light at just the right time. You have to admire the skill and eye that went into these shots.
