Can you imagine living in a world without nature? No trees, no wildlife, no cool spring waters to dip our toes into nor the opportunity to experience Mother Nature’s four seasons? Thankfully, Missourians are able to enjoy all of this and more! The photographers who entered the 391 photos in the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ third annual MissouriDNR Photo Contest certainly captured the essence of Missouri in all its glory.
