National Geographic is the only (non-yarn related) magazine subscription that I have consistently maintained for my entire adult life. I love the photography, the articles, and the world-wide perspective each issue provides. I recently transitioned from print to the digital subscription, and tend to devour the whole issue in one or two sittings. As the magazine has evolved over the years, they have done an excellent job of providing content outside of the monthly issue, not the least of which is their Photo of the Day.
For color inspiration this month, I thought it would be fun to see if I could put together some color stories in The Fibre Co. Terra inspired by some of my favorite nature images from the last few months.
1 / A Rare Rainy Day
Portuguese Photographer Roger Serrasqueiro took this image of two farmers on Cape Verde. I love the contrast between the lush green landscape, the rainy skies, and the patterned textiles of the farmer.2 / Hot and Cold
Photographer Jared Goodwin took this shot of the Kīlauea Volcano on the island of Hawai’i. I can’t help but look at this image and consider how loud the sounds emanating from the lava and ocean must have been.
3 / Swimming by the Stepwell
UK based photographer Shyam Prasad S. took this photo of Toorji ka jhalra, a stepwell in Rajasthan, India that was built in the 1740s and still in use today. I love the gradation of color from the deep blue water, mossy steps, to pink sandstone.
You can see all of the photos of the day here. Which one is your favorite?

Gorgeous photos and yarn match up. Very inspiring. A Rare Rainy Day is appealing, but all three are fabulous.
Thanks! I am always so impressed with the photography, so I am delighted to hear you found it inspiring as well! – Kate
