Week after week, we state that “photography has the power of lightening up our daily lives,”; and what a wonderful way of kick-starting our frantic routines by diving into some beautiful images in the comfort of our seats!
Here is our weekly wrap-up – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 647th challenge on Smooth Water Features! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

The aesthetic point of view!

“‘Silk' below the dam”
