A Photo a Week Challenge: The Great Outdoors

Chilean Inner Passage

This photo was taken as we cruised north off the Chilean coast. This area of the planet is almost completely untouched by humans. I have several dozen photos take over two days while we cruised this beautiful coastline.

For other entries in this week’s challenge, go to the blog Nancy Merrill Photography and browse through the comment section. Even better, dig through your photo stash and find a photo of The Great Outdoors and share it with others.

A Photo a Week Challenge: White

This is definitely not snow. Here we have Mammoth Hot Springs where the calcium carbonate deposits build up in shelves of beautiful white travertine terraces.

Of course, if you want some cool (or should I say cold) white or blue-white, you can always look for some ice broken off of an Alaskan glacier:
