I knew I would not make the finals this month - the standard of entries was so high!

Every one vote, K&R to cast the delight of the talent of this splendid bunch far and wide!

I am tortured every contest trying to pick just one. These are all absolutely amazing photos. It reminds me that there still is so much beauty to behold and not to get too caught up in the barrage of bad news in our country.

Trying to be philosophical, I see that all these beauties have some support, and some have a lot. So they all win!
