Photo 26-1

Photo 26-3

From reader Barb Froelich: “Heading out of Arches National Park after a long day of hiking and sightseeing, we saw what was shaping up to be a glorious sunset. We stopped at Balanced Rock to grab this shot, then off we went!”

Photo 26-4

Photos 26-5

From reader Reno DiTullio: “What’s not to like about Yosemite National Park? This scene from Tunnel View was taken early morning during a rain storm, only two of us there; usually this overlook is packed with people… go early, stay late. Enjoy”

Hard choices! I’m a sucker for sunrise/sunset photos so I’m going with #3. My favorite thing about these selections is that I’ve been to #1-4 and #5 is on my twice-postponed list!

Even though it was tough to pic today, Jeff clearly ran away with it with the
“Wrath of the Almighty”!

Given the increasing quality and consequent difficulty in making a choice for best of the 5 photos, I can only imagine how difficult the job of editing and choosing which photos to publish has become. Thanks for another batch of enjoyable pics.

I’m glad my photo contribution was not pitted against any of these, especially the lightning one. I wouldn’t stand a chance. These are really good.

This was the hardest choice yet. All of them were great!

Jeff’s Teton Thunderstorm photo is a one-in-a-million shot! I’d frame and hang that one in my home. Wow!

Stunning photos!

I think some of these photos are from professionals. I would like to see a person or camper in the pic to show it is not. I voted for the gentleman holding up the camper because it is genuine.

Could it be that there are “professionals” out here RV’ing with us? Or RV’ers whose hobby is photography and not just snapshotting (like me).

It’s getting harder and harder to pick just one great shot.

I doubt if any pro’s would do it for only the $50 prize. A couple of these pictures I would buy.

I agree…look in the lower right corner of 26-5.

Not sure how one would exclude or prohibit those submissions, though. But the contest has gotten so good in submissions that, at least in my case, I know I could never compete with the top photos that are sure to win. So, I vote but will probably not be compelled to submit my futile attempts with a cell phone!

Yes, #26-5 was taken by a professional. But even the amateurs have a shot (pun) at winning, if they get more friends and family, et al., to vote for their picture. So take a shot, Spike, and submit it. Then have everyone you know vote. You might win! Oh, BTW. Check out the results so far on the current photo contest. Just sayin’. Take care. 😀 –Diane

It was a difficult choice between the pictures presented today. Great job on all of them…
