Nature is full of stories if you know where to look. The environment is also in a constant state of flux and creating its own narratives. Humans play their own role to shape the outcomes and plot. There seem to be more and more reports of natural disasters, and drought and fires are becoming the new normal in the west. Scientists are shaping the future of agriculture. These images represent a few of the stories I see around me as I contemplate where our relationship with the environment is headed. Will future stories be shaped by greed and loss, or renewal and hope? Perhaps both.
