11 stunning spring pictures

Taken by members for Earth Day

20 April 2022

Every April 22, more than a billion people come together to celebrate Earth Day.

It's a day to of action to get people to change their behaviours to protect the environment, influence policies and save our planet.

Since in started in 1970, Earth Day is all about individuals coming together across the world to make an impact and drive environmental change.

We wanted to showcase how beautiful our world is this Earth Day, so we asked members to send us their spring photos. We chose 11 of our favourites.

Lily, 2nd Newtown Guides

The beautiful cherry blossoms represent the coming of spring, it's so pretty!

Tigi, Blagdon Rainbows

This is one of 30 birdfeeders Blagdon Rainbows made this spring and then hung in the trees in the gardens to feed our local birds.

We love this action shot that shows the beauty of the robin using one of the Rainbows' handmade birdfeeders.

Felicity and Beatrix, 2nd Beighton Brownies

We really liked the scenic beach view and natural beauty of the rainbow above the hill top.

Gina, leader

A misty morning walk making everything seem black and white in a colour picture.

Very atmospheric and a little bit spooky! We thought it was really interesting that the picture is naturally black and white, even though it's shot in colour.

Tracy, 1st Long Ashton Brownies

The beauty of our village and woodlands in Long Ashton, Bristol, where we hold 1st Long Ashton Brownies. It is a joy for the children to explore.

Meghan, 1st Coppull Guides

12-year-old Meghan took this photo for her Photography interest badge. We love the bright green leaves and the winding stream.

Errin-Mai, 1st Kintbury Brownies

Nine-year-old Errin-Mai took this photo of a sunset at Doniford Bay. We loved the silhouetted people and all the different shades of orange.

Ava, 4th South Woodham Ferrers Guides

Ava took this photo of a swallowtail butterfly on a day out at Southend Sealife Centre. We love how the colours of the background match the butterfly itself, it's a bit camouflaged and very interesting to look at.

Lilly, 16th Burton St Johns Guides

We loved the autumnal colours and the reflection in the water. It really captures the beauty of nature!

Audrey, leader

A fantastic shot that's framed really nicely by the tree branches in the foreground.

Lily, 3rd Sutton Guides

I like the way they look like they have been drawn with a ruler.

We loved it too!
