The Before We Begin photo series is a lesson in reflection. A calming presence, it will surely instill a meditative presence to your day after you have viewed it. More than that, it will inspire you to truly take in your natural surroundings, perhaps even take a picnic lunch and stare up into the blue skies now that summer has officially arrived.

Shot by Stavanger-based photographer Christopher Jonassen, the Before We Begin photo series really makes the viewer appreciate nature and the little things in life, such as the luxury of cloud-gazing. With its deep, saturated hues and bird-eye compositions, it also shows how meaningful our environment is to us. We might be quite small in the scheme of things, but we have the singular capability of appreciating such beauty. Stats for Cloud-Gazing Captures Trending: Older & Mild
