The Best of Earth Day/Hour

Earth Day and Earth Hour both happened recently, and a famous photographer brought it to our attention that we should celebrate Earth Day with stunning pictures. So we’ll do just that (a few days late…)

Here are a variety of photo-essays dealing with not only Earth Hour and Earth Day, but also other fascinating aspects of our planet. Have a look…
