Awesome Mother Nature

There are less than 2900 breeding pairs of the threatened Cape Vulture still alive today. Two paragliders in South Africa decided to fly with them, and the beauty of the world from their view is absolutely breathtaking. We hope you find this video as magnificent as we did, and perhaps it’s a good reminder for all of us to go outside—as often as we can—and rest ourselves in the healing power and tranquility of Mother Nature.

Magnificent World

Our world is large, recipe infinitely and wonderfully so. Yet it can be so easy for our awareness to shrink down when we feel afraid or stressed out. If we can stretch ourselves to look out into the glorious world outside our four walls and to see nature and the universe beyond, we are reminded of the larger brilliance of which we are all a part. And from this place we are much better able to put our challenges into healthy perspective.

In celebration of nature and life, here are some of National Geographic’s most stunning pictures of the year. Enjoy!
