Just as the humans are part of nature, nature has been affecting our lives since the dawn of time. In its many forms, such as the flora and fauna, mountains, oceans, microorganisms… nature has soothed us at times and threatened us at others. In such a way, it talks to us using its many voices. How do you hear these voices? How do you understand them? We are waiting for your answers from your photographs!
