It’s National Park Week! See How These Photographers Capture The Beauty Of Our Parks

National Park Week is a time to celebrate the beauty and importance of our National Parks, and one of the best ways to do that is by capturing the stunning landscapes through photography. With the right equipment and techniques, photographers can capture the vibrant colors, textures, and details of the natural world in stunning detail. National parks offer a unique opportunity for photographers to showcase their skills and capture images that inspire and connect people to the beauty of nature. It's important we remember that the National Parks are not only beautiful but also crucial for preserving the environment and the ecosystems within them.

Photographs can serve as a reminder of the importance of protecting these precious resources for future generations. The depth and breadth of beauty across the National Parks makes each the perfect photographic playground and gives photographers a chance to use a variety of Sony Alpha cameras and Sony lenses to capture different perspectives. We’ve gathered a list of Sony photographers who have done just that and are sharing their images of National Parks on Instagram. Awestruck by their beauty, these creators have made images that encapsulate the reasons for National Parks Week - make sure you follow them! To see more breathtaking imagery, follow @SonyAlpha on Instagram. And to support the National Park Services, head to NPS.gov.

These photographers use a variety of Sony zooms and primes to capture interesting perspectives that encapsulate the reasons for National Park Week.

The image below is of the Colorado RIver slicing its way through the Grand Canyon in Grand Canyon National Park. We love how the sun rays just peek through the rock, before setting. The contrast of the blue hour with the golden sun rays is visually stunning.
