Despite a major consumer online shift from text to imagery, the beauty of nature and a love for the natural world is still a great source of inspiration for many writers and poets today. However, as the internet becomes more visual poetry and prose may no longer be the fashionable means by which to evoke a sense of awe and wonder for secluded woodlands and lonely shores. In a complex turbulent world, dogged by poverty, war, climate change and species-loss, the desire to share what matters to us most is no less urgent. Hence the need for faster, more fascinating online content.
There is rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrude,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar,
I love not man the less, but nature more.
Lord Byron, 22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824
