I love nature photography, especially when these images of the wild are done in full color and contrast. The following wildlife wall calendars are a mixed set: some merely sharing beautiful photographs, others including uplifting quotes as well. See also the calendars devoted to the US national parks.
Who doesn’t love to look at the scenery and natural beauty of wildlife in it’s natural habitat? That’s what Wildlife Calendars give you. I’ve found you a few of the most beautiful.
National Geographic Calendar
I go through a yearly ritual sometime in October, early November: picking out a wall calendar for my kitchen. It has to be inspiring, beautiful and of course it has to help me keep track of the date. As a home-business owner I don’t have many outside signals as to the date. It’s easy to lose track of the day of the week. My wall calendar helps me with that.
This year I picked the ‘Beautiful World’ calendar by National Geographic. I love looking at images of nature and these are, like you’d expect from National Geographic, stunning. National Geographic is known for photographs taken worldwide and their calendars showcase the best and most amazing.
On the cover is a peacock in full swing. Blue and green and luminescent. But there are also images of flora: a leaf white with frost, flowers in various shades, a lake reflecting the sky, a pond with lotus leaves (without the flowers), fall colors and a beautiful butterfly.
Research tells us looking at nature is relaxing. What’s more: people who have natural shapes to look at are significantly happier and less aggressive than people who don’t. For now I still live in an apartment looking out on a highway, so I can use the reminder of a more natural landscape.
