It's no surprise that nature lovers also love to take photos. What's less known is that very few of these pics include people, said Bay Nature's editorial director Dan Rademacher.
"I had a reader write in to say I have 40,000 nature pictures but none of them have people in them," Rademacher says. "We wanted to challenge our readers to show the different ways people interact with nature."
So to celebrate Bay Nature's 10th Anniversary, the magazine held a photo contest. The readers rose to the challenge. Bay Nature received 250 photos, the last time the magazine held a photo contest 200 people sent in pics. The following are eight best. (-Queena Kim)
