The July photos showed a nice mix of culture, landscape and wildlife. As more and more people submit images, the overall quality is obviously rising – a real joy for me. Three photos that caught my eye this month:

Piedad by Francisco Madrid

The desaturated color gives this tightly composed image a powerful, timeless feel.

Fitzroy Wilderness by Ricardo La Piettra

Exquisitely executed and thoughtfully composed, this image captures the raw wild beauty of this remote region.

Erte’ale Volcano by Richard Notebaart

One of the few lava lakes on Earth, Erta’Ale is both extremely difficult to reach as well as difficult to photograph. Great job for a fine effort!

    All three are beautiful, I really like the second image, its so perfect. The first one is very well done, I like the way it looks. The third one is so surreal it looks like so many things.
