  1. Wow, what a lot of talent! Some of these photographs are absolutely exquisite! I really love the images by Punkdelish, especially the waterfall and the rainy day photo. And Taylormichaelburk is also very impressive. The forest and the waterfall seen from above are spectacular. I also like Paulzizkaphoto’s snowy scenes especially the first one with all the ‘other worldly’ colours.
