Photo by the Educational Group: Many Wonders
This photo captures the essence of color, and getting it at the right time of day. And I just find it interesting that there are places like this in the world. The colors, the beauty. But, if you go there, be prepared to find out that it is a barren desert, with a harsh climate that is hard to enjoy. But, God made a piece of beauty out there. One person who has been there enlightens us with this information:
Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is located in Arizona, immediately south of the Utah state line. This National Monument, 293,689 acres (118,852 ha) in area, protects the Paria Plateau, Vermilion Cliffs, Coyote Buttes, and Paria Canyon.

David Banta has quickly become one of my favorite photographers. It amazes me that David can just take some old moldy (not really....lichen, I believe) log in the forest, just laying there, and make
it look so beautiful. Now, when I have learned a lot about this photo a lot, because I was into some woods the other day, with a lot of dead logs, and was trying to figure a way to make them look good, but, studying this log, the way he took this photo, made me realize there is beauty in almost everything. Of course, it has to be the right log, correct. A great job David. Thanks for your

Photo by Duarte Sol
Another one of my favorite photographers. You know you come across a few favorite photographers who just does everything right. Their composition is great, they wait for the light to become perfect, and they know where to go for the most beautiful photos. Of Course, Duarte Sol lives in one of the most beautiful places in the world, so all he has to do is take a little trek somewhere to get these kind of beautiful photos. Great leading lines, rule of thirds, beautiful sunset ( or sunrise ), and perfect exposure in the foreground, and you have the perfect photo. Thanks Duarte, for your amazing talents.

Photo by Jim Miller
Jim Miller is also one of my favorite photographers. It has been a good week when some of my favorite photographers are posting some outstanding photos this week. Jim is no exception. He is on tour down the Rhine River. Sometimes we don't see all the beauty of these little hidden villages unless you get a good photographer to go down the river as well, and they are willing to share their photos. What a beautiful little village. The homes are all beautifully painted, and the little castle or church in the background. So unique. Now, what makes this unique is that Jim is a good enough photographer to know how to frame this right, and make it look like a pro took it. Great job Jim. I have been enjoying your trip.

Oh, this is also one of my newest favorite photographers. He has such a unique style to his photos. How he makes every photo look like a painting. They are just amazing. Plus, how he even signs his photos makes it just that much more amazing. But, this is just life, isn't it? Seems like such a simple photo. But, the extra work he did to create the vignette, and the grainy effect, and the story to
the photo is just a great photo. His photos just capture my attention a lot. Thanks for taking the time to make every photo you display an amazing photo.
He recently had this photo published at this website:
Congratulations on this accomplishment. Your work will be recognized all over the world.
Photo from the Facebook Page: Around the World and Then Some
This new Facebook page, I recently discovered, with no photographer names to it, is basically set up as an educational page. This allows all Facebook users to see great photos from all over the world, in different places. I appreciate when they use such magnificent photos from great, unnamed photographers. But, this photo really caught my eye as a perfect photo. Lighting good subject material, good catch with the birds in the background. It is just one of those photos that would be hard to ever see again. So, it is certainly worthy of being counted as a "Photo of the Week".
Thanks again to all the photographers who have willingly shared their photos to the world. All photographers have given permission to use their photos, and are copyrighted. Permission to use these photos must be obtained by the photographer, please.
