Angel Canyon  --  +Best Friends Animal Society  --  Kanab, UT.

The next time you head out to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks or travel through Kanab, UT, visit the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.  They are the largest no-kill animal shelter in the country and the free tours are incredible!!  It covers 4000 acres in Kanab Canyon (aka Angel Canyon) and they have all kinds of animals.  They are really committed to no more homeless pets.  Their motto is "Save Them All".  This is the view from the dining area.

Several of the cats from +Brown County Humane Society including Bo and Barney live at Best Friends now.

Check out +Landscape Photography Community 's latest contest Winter.  The photographs are amazing and the winners will be announced soon.

Lipan Point  --  South Rim  --  Grand Canyon

I love the Grand Canyon and Kaibab Plateau and especially the places where you can see the Colorado River!!  Lipan Point is on the South Rim and is a popular place!  The last time I was there, I was with friends and chatted with people from all over the world.  It made me realize just how small the world is and how many people cherish this landscape as I do!!  I hope you're having a great weekend!!

What is your favorite Winter photograph?  We would love to see it at the +Landscape Photography Community contest "Winter".  It's open until Monday and I'd love to see your photo there!!  Here's a link:

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.

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.
