Let's make some classsic postcards which were so popular before digital communications prevailed. OK, postcards are still being used, but by no means in any significant percentage, and our paper mail nowadays consists mostly of bills... So, use one of the pretty images you have taken, add "Greetings From (insert location name)" or "Welcome To...", and make us want to visit nice places. Do observe the rules, please, so's your postcard won't get lost! :)

Golden Lotus Banana

14th place
This was taken near Tiger Leaping Gorge in Northern Yunnan, China on a STEEP side of a mountain. It looked amazing and was the only one I saw so I took a series of photos highlighting the flower. I had no idea what it was until recently when I found out it is SUPPOSED to be extinct in the wild... But I saw it, in the wild. Here is my favorite image, in a postcard form, of the Golden Lotus Banana directly from Yunnan, China!
