When I was little, my parents had a subscription to National Geographic magazine. I would spend hours enjoying the articles and pictures in every issue. We have many copies of the magazine in the house now and my kids enjoy them just like I did.
Every so often I visit the National Geographic website. One could spend hours. Here are a few examples of pictures taken across the globe depicting patterns in nature which I find truly inspirating for their quality of photography, color combinations and patterns, subject matter and sometimes just because they are visually spectacular or dramatic.
The leaves of a Lobelia Plant spiral around the center.
Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.
The flower of a Claret Cup Cactus Flower.
The Hairpin Banksia.
Sharp spines on a Prickly Pear Cactus.
The Galapagos Islands.
Palm Fronds; the leaf is symbolic in many religions.

I could fill up an entire gallery wall with these. There is so much more stunning photography to indulge in on the website. Do you visit the National Geographic website? Do you look to nature for inspiration?All images via National Geographic.
