Community Contest discontinued for and indefinite period of time

*It's not forever, but I'll have to take one step at a time

Will get back with the contest as soon as the community has more members and it is better known to a larger public.

Until then please make sure you mark your best shots from the American Southwest with the TAG *#usaSouthwestTravelers and the name of the State as shown below:

#Arizona #California #Colorado #NewMexico #Nevada #Oklahoma #Texas #Utah

Will do a weekly search on the Internet for this TAG and select the best images to be added to collection of the respective US State.

Looking forward to seeing many images with the above TAGs ...

You will be informed by the Admin if one of your photos is shared in the TOP Collections ...

2011 - The natural Bridge - Bryce Canyon National Park.
I took this picture in the late afternoon, just after some heavy rains. The sky was still very cloudy, but I was lucky enough to see a sun ray hitting the bridge.

Hello, my name is Thierry Guinet, I'm living in Belgium and love traveling and sharing the pictures I'm taking, with people. I love particularly the south western part of the USA and have unfortunately not enough opportunities to visit these places. These are the Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite National Park.
