Pick Your Favorite: 3 Awesome Landscape Photos

email this page

If there's one thing I want you to take away from this website, it's that you should not underestimate my appreciation for photography of the natural world. Because this week brings us John Muir's birthday (the 21st) and Earth Day (the 22nd) I figured this to be a good time to feature some superb photos taken right here on planet Earth.

I've selected three lensmen whom I admire for their skill with the camera and their dedication to seeking out extraordinary light and subjects, a pursuit that does not come easy or without sacrifice. To tie it together, planet Earth is a pretty cool place and these guys do a bang up job taking photos of it. Each one of them shares a photograph with you right here, and I want you to tell me which one you like the best. Just because I think that'll be kind of fun to hear what you have to say.

So it's up to you now, good reader. Which one of these pictures is your favorite?

On Friday April 22, I'll check the results for the photo that earned the most votes, and the responsible photographer will get a $50 award, and you can download the winning photo as a wallpaper.

I've always loved Trevor's photography. All three are wonderful photos, though.

After spending some time on each, I voted for Brad Garland's image. His was the one I spent the most time with.
