Landscape photography is the art of capturing the beauty of the natural world. It can be a challenging genre, as it requires both a keen eye for composition and the patience to wait for the perfect light. But when done well, landscape photography can transport viewers to another place and time. The best landscape photographs are those that evoke a sense of wonder, whether it’s the vastness of a mountain range or the ethereal quality of a misty forest. Thank you to all the participants in this photo contest that shared their favorite landscape shots with chances to win a Canon Mark II mirrorless camera and more.
