  3. Thank you for putting together this magnificent compilation! I am a landscape (hobby) photographer already, and some of these left me simply gasping in awe. Amazing photos!

  4. A lot of your pictures have chemtrails in them. That is the poison that is being sprayed on all life. Not a “pretty” picture.

    1. Chemtrails really are considered conspiracy theories and based on misconceptions and scare tactics. Contrails (water condensations) don’t always dissipate quickly simply because the air movement in troposphere/stratosphere doesn’t always move quickly. Chemicals have nothing to do with it. The chemtrails has been debunked.

  5. Hoping you can direct me to where I can find the black and white picture of looking up through trees. I just thought it was beautiful.

  6. Wonderful photo’s, thanks for sharing ,can you tell me if I am allowed to loosely use this photo to use to paint a picture. J am an amateur artist and I think this is inspiring. Thank you
