L'année 2023 a été marquée par l'été le plus chaud de l'histoire et a subi une suite d'événements climatiques extrêmes. Autre fait marquant : le traité historique des Nations unies visant à protéger les océans du monde. Les photographes de l'agence ont, de leur côté, continué à capturer la beauté universelle et la résilience de notre planète pour que tout le monde puisse l'admirer.

Alex Hyde a photographié les détails fascinants du scutellum d'un coléoptère, tandis que Mateusz Piesiak nous a offert un panorama impressionnant des Alpes suisses, du point de vue d'un Chocard à bec jaune. Des détails les plus infimes aux paysages les plus vastes, ce best-of 2023 forme un kaléidoscope de couleurs, de textures et d'émotions, dont chaque image est un émerveillement. Oubliez pour un moment vos vies trépidantes, surbookées et hyper-connectées pour réfléchir à l'année écoulée au travers de l'objectif de ces photos de nature.
