Atala Toy Nature Spirit Photography

It all began when a gnome invited me to take photos of some local moss faeries.  Next a tree spirit asked me to take his photograph.

Enjoy these images of beauty, hope and inspiration.

We interact with nature on many different levels. Sometimes we build structures that express our love of some energy or fulfill a practical function in a beautiful manner. Sometimes we just stand and in awe of how beautiful our earth is…
