Here, Olivia McLeod of Blackbird Art is recreating in chalk the painting “Jaroslava” by Alphonse Mucha.
This work won the “Best Reproduction of a Master’s Work” and “Peoples Choice” awards at the Denver Chalk Art Festival 2017. I used a little Lightroom trickery to correct the photo’s perspective.
Another great piece of work from the 2017 Denver Chalk Art Festival.
This one by Karl Horeis tied for third place.
About 3 minutes’ worth of sheet lightning in our Colorado front range neighborhood, captured with my Olympus E-M1II’s Live Composite mode:

A fisheye view of Echo Canyon in Zion National Park, seen from under “Weeping Rock:”
This scene, BTW, is just a taste of the attractions in Zion. The place can get a bit crowded during the summer, but a shuttle bus service runs up and down the canyon, and many impressive sights are just a short hike away from a shuttle stop.
