Challenge has finished
Look up - look waaaay up - it's time to apply the "Art of Earth" concept to mountain ranges. That means multiple mountains must be the main feature of the photographs submitted. And because this is the "Art of Earth" only natural scenes are permitted - no human elements or built environments, please!

The peak in the foreground is "Big Kupen", part of the "Kupeni" ridge, one of the main ones in Rila mountain. It is 2731m (8960ft) high and covered in snow and ice for about 4-5 months per year. This shot was taken in the autumn of 2009, just a few days before the first snowfall. What can be seen in the background are some of the peaks of the "Musalensko" ridge of the mountain.
