These 50 Photos Will Blow you Away

With our two recent blogs “The Top 75 Pictures of the Year for 2013” (see HERE) and “100 of the Best Street Art Photos for 2013” (see HERE) still being viewed at viral proportions, we thought we’d start a series of showcases that are meant to make the jaws drop! Here’s the first one of the series: none of the 50 photos are photoshopped, to emphasize the natural beauty and the professionalism of the photographers. Sit back, enjoy, and let us know your favorites in the COMMENTS section at the bottom of the blog…

  1. The Glowing Barrel by David Orias has a beautiful metallic quality below the golden gilt. And I love the Duo Landing by Harry Eggens for the contrast in color and texture. Thank you for all this beauty!
