Democracy is such a beautiful thing. I’m offering you another chance to vote! This time it’s on my favourite landscapes from blog posts in 2013.
If you happen to wander around this blog a little, you may have noticed I have a tiny preference for wildlife. I like to look for wildlife in beautiful places so if the creatures are playing possum, I amuse myself with scenery. I even managed to collect 10 shots to make a full lid for this post. Just for the record, my eclectic definition of landscapes is basically any nature photo that doesn’t include wildlife.
So vote away on the poll at the end – for as many photos as you like and see how others voted. As always, I’d love to hear why you made the choices.
1. Mountain Magic
While driving near Fairmont BC, I had to stop when I noticed the sun hitting this distant mountain peak. Definite stopping power.
2. Favourite Haunt
3. Leaning into the Sun
Hoarfrost at a nearby lake created wonderful displays along the shore line. Thankfully I didn’t go blind taking this shot.
4. Grand Sunset
I went to Grand Teton National Park in the US for wildlife and found this sunset along the way. What an evening!
5. Peace and Turmoil
Water turned to glass on the lake above Nistowiak Falls in northern SK. I don’t think I’ll ever remember how to spell those falls!
Spring emerges in Banff National Park. What better symbol than this?
7. Frosty Barb
8. Unusual Beauty
I drove past this scene in Prince Albert National Park but the image lingered and forced me to back up to take the photo. Who knew a pile of branches was photogenic?
9. Magical Light
What were the odds the sun would trace around the edges of this valley in Yellowstone National Park while I watched?
10. Simple Beauty
There is something special about pure, driven snow. Thankfully I didn’t walk through this area to get to this spot.
