Patty Arnett is a photographer and has always considered herself a “nature lover”. She photographs the beauty of nature so others can enjoy it, too. Her photographs show nature up close and personal.  Patty started visiting Yosemite National Park annually as a child. The natural grandeur she discovered there inspired her first photography efforts. As an adult, her photography has taken her traveling to many different locations for inspiration.
