Dear Friends,  I'm sharing our Best of the Week circle again because we inadvertently included someone who had shared non-original work to the theme and didn't give credit to the original photographer.  Of course, we ONLY want to see original work at the +Landscape Photography theme.  I know many of your save these circles as these are the people that inspire us all.  The person is +Adriana Sanchez .  I urge you to remove her from your circles.  Thanks very much.

Landscape Photography Community Inspiration Circle

Congratulations to the Best of the Best for February, 2015!!  Each person here has had at least one photograph selected by a moderator as a #LandscapePhotoOfTheDay!!  Some have had more than one photo selected!!
Are you looking for inspiration for your Landscape Photography?  This is it!

I'm NOT in the circle, but really wish I was!
1. Study the landscape photographs produced by these people.  Each day, look at their work, study it.  Compare their work to yours.  There's a reason that their photographs were selected by a moderator.  Check out the learning opportunities in some of our categories.
2. Try to improve your landscape photographs.  *Remember quality is more important than quantity!*
3. Keep sharing your best landscape photographs with the Landscape Photography Community!  
4. Do not dump and run. Post a comment with your photo. Tell us about it or tell us about the experience.

Maybe next month YOU will be in the Inspiration Circle!!

Note: The hardworking Landscape Photography Community moderators are also in this circle.

Dreamland Overlook

Just before the mighty Colorado River cuts through the Grand Canyon, it winds it's way through Marble Canyon.  This is a remote section of the river that had the most amazing views I've ever seen.  Many thanks to +Dreamland Safari Tours and +William James for taking me there!!  How awesome that I got to share this wonderful adventure with great friends!!

Introduction
I'm a photographer, learning, teaching, and documenting the world around me.  My favorite subjects are landscapes, birds, wildlife, people and pets.  I especially like taking photographs of figure skaters.  I like to learn from other photographers and share photographs.
 
I love cats and helping animal shelters.
 
I'm in tune with older music from the late 50s and early 60s and have always enjoyed Dick Dale, Jan & Dean, the Beach Boys, surf music, and early rock & roll.
