Jeffrey Hannas took this spectacular shot of the night sky over the Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado. Here’s what he had to say about it. “The weather didn’t cooperate the entire time we were at GSDNP except for a little bit last night. We were there and I was able to get a few shots of the Milky Way. This was taken with a fisheye lens and just at the right time a car came by, which helped with lighting up the foreground and gave a nice light trail.”

There are some sights that are just too beautiful for words. Like the view from Glacier Point overlooking Half Dome in Yosemite National Park.

File this under things you won’t see every day. Rick Kimble, a photographer and frequent visitor to San Joaquin River National Wildlife Refuge, caught a red fox and a gray fox vying for dominance. “I heard these two before I saw them. They were so distracted I got right up on them. When they heard the shutter they were off in a flash. I doubt I’ll ever get another chance like that.”
Another amazing sight in America’s great outdoors. A #rainbow in the distance over Rocky Mountain National Park.

It’s not every day you get a close up look at a black bear and it’s meal. This excellent photo was taken by Bert Van Mackelenberg in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve in Alaska.
One of the most spectacular #lightning strikes we have ever seen. This photo was taken near the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
