Every once in a while, we need to step away from our high-tech, fast paced lives and take some time to enjoy the beauty of nature. In a society where distractions are ubiquitous, the calm and colorful elegance of the outdoors can be therapeutic. It’s also refreshing to see cities work to bring more greenery and open spaces to the concrete jungle. These photos, beautifully compiled on The Cool Hunter website, capture the simple artistry of nature.
