There’s nothing quite like a summertime hike through the mountains or a peaceful walk on the shores of a favorite lake. Warm weather is the ultimate motivator to get outside and enjoy a little nature. That’s why this week’s Photos of the Day challenge is all about putting on your Ansel Adams hat (or beard) and hitting the trails! (8×10 camera not required—but it sure would be cool).

This week’s theme

We want to see your best Ansel Adams/John Muir-inspired photographs of the great outdoors. Whether you’re shooting film, instant, or digital—color, B&W, or sepia, all forms/styles of photography are welcomed, just as long as you can convey the majesty of nature. We hope you get out and explore some seriously stunning landscapes!
