Photography has the power of lightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by checking out some beautiful images in the comfort of our homes.
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 587th challenge on Bodies of Water in Nature! And of course, we'll introduce some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
Photo Of The Week – April 25th, 2022
Again so many stunning candidates! I had to go for something different otherwise I wouldn’t be able to decide.
I picked Patrick’s minimal landscape because, well – it’s extremely minimal and effective, like line art. Also, there’s something very zen about it, I can imagine it hanging in a Japanese businessman’s office (gotta be a businessman with great taste!). I think this shot would look magical if printed in large format.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from this wild challenge!

Last but not least, some interesting lichen which according to Dave, it takes two organisms that cannot survive individually to develop this particular species of lichen:
Do you remember Robert's newfound love? Well, he found that one of the attachments bundled with his Lensbaby comes with a pinhole thingy, and he managed to achieve some camera obscura effects, here are a couple of our favorite shots:
And remember to say hello to our newest Light Stalking member Denis!
