Night landscapes featuring the milky way are a dime a dozen these days. Let's see your best moonlit landscape. Stars are OK as image elements, but the milky way should NOT be the main focus. Natural landscapes only, no moon-over-the-city images. A few man made features are OK.

Doesn't quite fit into the series title ... so sue me!! Show us your favorite image taken within a 1 kilometer radius of where you live. It can be most anything ... landscape, people, objects, insects, flowers, whatever! Make us all want to be there in that moment. Tell us where it is relative to your residence and why it is special to you.

Showcase your landscape images of places most of us haven't seen. None, or very minimal, man-made content should be evident. Commonly photographed views are not allowed. Examples are Mesa Arch at sunrise in Canyonlands NP and the usual viewpoints in Yosemite valley and Grand Tetons, or Maroon Bells in Colorado. Show us something new!

You must use a true IR camera, either in front of lens filter or else modified camera with IR filter in front of sensor. BW only. The idea is to showcase the incredible haze penetration capability of IR landscape photography. NO white light photos processed to mimic true IR.
