Summer time is an awesome time to get out and take photos. But, the one kind of photography that really seems to thrive when the temperatures rise is landscape. This month's contest had a ton of great photos, but the concentration of amazing outdoor and nature shots is almost staggering. There are sweeping mountain shots to dramatic sea scapes and everything in between. It's a nice indicator that, with the polar vortex of the winter over, people are grabbing their cameras (and their tripods) and heading out to make awesome images.
