Nature photography is a great way to experience the outdoors. It's a non-consumptive activity that leaves nothing behind, yet it provides nature lovers the chance to take something tangible away from their experience.
Georgia Outdoors has been encouraging people to get out and enjoy the art of nature photography for 5 years through our nature photography contest.
From the sandy shores of Jekyll Island to the lush gardens at Callaway, we've visited some very photogenic places with our winners. On this episode we take a look back at some of the amazing winners and amazing places we've seen in the process.
