Nature has been a continuing inspiration to artists for 30,000 years. It's always exciting to see new takes on this classic subject, especially by rediscovering landscapes via the gene on 

"And for all this, nature is never spent;/ There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;/ And though the last lights off the black West went/ Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs--/ Because the Holy Ghost over the bent/ World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings." 

--From Gerard Manley Hopkins, God's Grandeur, 1877.
