Here at Photography Holidays we’ve always known that nature makes us happy. That’s why we spend so much time capturing nature and the natural world with our cameras! But we must admit that it’s really nice to have some science to back us up. The BBC and the University of California have recently collaborated on the real happiness project and found that “watching content from Planet Earth II inspired significant increases in feelings of awe, contentedness, joy, amusement and curiosity” and “that it also acted to reduce feelings of tiredness, anger and stress”.

So, here’s a little bit of happiness from our own Renato Granieri. We hope it has the desired effect!
