This is the place to post your submissions in the Earth category!
Providing a title or description (of location and/or subject) of your photo(s) is helpful!
Just a gentle reminder that the topic of this category is earth— in the “dirt, stone, ground, geology” sense rather than the “this planet” sense (in other words, the geosphere, not the biosphere or others). I’m happy to be very broad and leave a lot open to interpretation, but please do try to maintain some connection!
This is a shot of a wall of Parker Canyon (in Arizona) that I took during one of the few snow hikes that I have done.
Turbeaux You submitting this for both categories? ?
Mount Seymour No, but I do have another entry for this one!
Obviously, I did not take this photo myself but I was giving the photographer very specific instructions and had mocked up the shot using him in the same position using a tripod and leaving it in position. This was McFadden Horse Mountain with Elephant Rock immediately behind me and the Mogollon Rim (the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau) in the background. If I broke the rules, feel free to strike this from the record!
This photo was taken at the Hominy Valley Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
I'm guessing where this one was taken based on where it is saved a folder among other photos. Either taken at the Hominy Valley Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway or taken during the hike to the peak of Fryingpan Mountain.
This is perhaps my favorite of all the pictures I have taken in my life. Taken from the peak of Fryingpan Mountain.
One of many views from the peak of Mt. Mitchell, tallest mountain in North America east of the Mississippi.
Kannap Absolutely beautiful! Are the other photos from the same location?
No, the first two photos are from random overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway, I can't recall which overlooks since anytime I go anywhere along the Parkway, I end up stopping at many overlooks.
The one with the flowers with the single mountain in the distance was taken on the peak of Fryingpan Mountain, which I happened to have hiked to reach a Fryingpan Lookout Tower. I've added location guesses for the first two pictures, based on where they were saved in the folder compared to other pictures. Luckily, every time I go hiking I make a new folder to save the images in, so the first three pictures were all taken in the same day.

Wantevolo You are quite well-traveled!
Mount Seymour Yep, I taught English to get visas and travel around for a few years. I feel boring now by comparison, but I have lots of pics from that time!
