Sometimes we get so caught up in our daily routines and day-to-day lives that we forget to notice the small things and nature that surrounds us. We tend to forget how magical it can be and that it's the best place to escape to when life is hard as it gives us peace of mind. Luckily, from time to time, various artists remind us of its magic and beauty, and this artist does it perfectly!

Martijn Schrijver is a 40-year-old digital artist from Amsterdam, Netherlands who finds his peace of mind and inspiration in the beauty of nature. He creates surreal photo manipulations that combine wildlife, various animals with mesmerizing landscapes of nature. It perfectly shows how glorious and majestic nature can be and that we shouldn't take it for granted. From giant rhinos forming a stunning rock to an elephant spraying water like a waterfall, Martijn invites us to step inside his magical world inspired by the beauty of nature.

"I'm inspired by nature and I like to create various surreal and humorous photo manipulations, like incorporating animals into landscapes. I love to see nature photos and come up with surreal ideas and make it "real" with Photoshop" - says the artist about his inspirations.

Sadly these kinds of pics may be the only way future generations see these beautiful animals - this one sends a really poignant message about that
