"Aloha! This was a private nude cruise hosted by the Oahu Sun Club. We've all met at the club and we link up at least once a month for nude, non-sexual & fun parties! On the left is my boyfriend, who I met 3 years ago at the parties. I'm next and to the right are our two friends!" - @jazguerrier
FREEDOM. Got the Olfi One.Five action camera! Haven't used it underwater yet but super stoked to get some naked 4k underwater mermaid photos.
If you want one for your NIN adventure shots they've been kind enough to set up the discount code 'Nakedinnature' for followers. Check the link in the bio.
Stephen Hawking, an inspiring physicist and cosmologist, has passed away at the age of 76. His work proved a reminder of how significantly insignificant we all are in comparison to what is beyond our atmosphere. If you're ever feeling low, take some time to look up at the sky, don't forget to look at the stars. They'll keep you curious in the same way they did for him. "Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up." - Stephen Hawking (Photo by: @buttinthenature)

"There’s nothing like a morning walk in the woods after an overnight snow fall. Everything is soft and muffled and beautiful. I couldn’t resist joining the scenery." - @queenofbudland (her name checks out)
Happy International women's day! TAG THE STRONG LADIES in your life!! Today is about celebrating the progression and achievements of females from all across the globe. Ladies, continue to be strong, to stand for what you know is right, and most importantly don't be afraid to be heard. Inspire your counterparts - be the best daughters, mothers, wives or friends that you can be. Don't let anybody hold you back or limit what you're capable of. Be you, unapologetically, and show yourself what's possible. You'll be surprised over the capacity that's within you.
To all the fine men out there, you're pretty awesome too. Go give the ladies in your life some appreciation for their hard work, it will mean a lot. Photo by: @bushbumsaustralia
This is my best friend, @chemicalblast. She is a crazy good artist (check her page to see the digital art medusa drawing she just completed of me, she's going to be a killer tattoo artist one day!) This was her first time getting NIN and she couldn't believe how good the experience was.
She thought she would feel self-conscious about her body in the photos after but was super surprised to see just how comfortable and happy she felt. I love her.
"Being naked in the open like this is a funny thing. For some people it's no big deal, but for me it was huge. I wouldn't say I'm super self conscious of my body but I'm not as open as some people I know. I guess I just grew up with the idea that nakedness was taboo and I never really had friends who were open about it. I had seen photos like this before and always knew it was something I wanted to try because deep down I like my body and I liked the idea of being 'free'.
On this particular day I wasn't super keen on doing the hike but I pushed myself to go with a friend and I'm so glad I did. The high you get when you finish a tough hike or any sort of challenge is a rush.
When we got to the top and it was just the two of us it felt like the most opportune moment to take my Naked in Nature shot. I was hot from the climb, I was high from adrenaline and I wanted to shout THIS IS MY BODY.
I felt liberated, I felt open and at the same time I felt no different than I had before. It was perfectly normal and beautiful - just like everybody's naked body." - @pacificbeauty.ca
"Just like us, nature comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, and temperatures. The scene is always changing, but unlike nature, where we just observe, we actively have a say in the person we want to be. Getting naked in nature is more than a funny way to dance in a freezing waterfall. It was my start to embracing life. So I encourage you to let loose the bow lines, set sail, (or even drop a few layers if that's what suits), but have no fear to live the life you were meant to live and be the person, stark naked and vulnerable, you were always destined to be." - @nickjohnsoneverybody
'Ever realize how the person infront of you is driving too slow and the person behind you is driving too fast?' I love that quote. It's so true and important to realize how quickly we are to judge others while simultaneously justifying ourselves.
We've all been there, had somebody who has done or said something that has made us feel terrible. Why then do we do this to other people? It's important to be opinionated and passionate - that's what makes us human - but it's also important to understand the other end of the stick and be aware of how your opinions can hurt others.
You know, more and more often I hear people complain about how this world is turning into a bad place and it's funny because those are usually the same people who are quick to be racist/sexist/make unnecessary insults. My rambling point is that sometimes the problem resides within ourself - be cognizant that it's not always the other people who are the issue. That whole 'treat others the way you want to be treated' thing isn't a popular saying for no reason.
"Some days you just have to give the forest all your worries and let Mother Nature heal you." - @hale_cassket
It's true! Getting out into nature has been the most mentally stimulating yet relaxing activity for me when my mind feels like it's in pieces. Studies have even been conducted showing the positive effects of a walk on among trees on the brain, so go get out there!
WE'RE BACK! Incase you noticed, over a week ago our account got deactivated for 'not following community guidelines' - it was investigated and it actually DOES follow them because Instagram DOES allow photos of bums (which we already knew). So there's that, we're sticking around and bringing you all the Naked in Nature photos you could dream of! Photo: @parachute_backpacks
Look! Another shot from Texas with some crazy beautiful hair. @whitneyrogersphotography and her friend said after seeing the last photo we posted from Austin, they also had to strip down and send one in.
