This is the most beautifully designed website I think I’ve seen. Anyone with an interest in photography and/or nature would enjoy surfing around on this one. It contains calendar pages with award-winning photos that can be printed out and has a photography contest you can enter. The photos can be used as your wallpaper. There is a portion of the site which interviews folks who make nature related items, such as mobiles, birdhouses, etc. which even contains videos of them explaining their craft.
