Landscape Challenge

Challenge series hosted by Bill Thoo. Challenges start on Thursdays.
Landscape photos are my favourites. The beauty of the location, the travel whether short or distant, the images themselves, all spark joy. Can you boost your creativity within the bounds of a challenge? Challenges will be posted approximately monthly (please be patient!). You may also wish to join or post to the Flickr group "Landscape Challenges", newly created for this series: https://www.flickr.com/groups/2918843@N21/
