There is plenty of anti-American sentiment where I’ve been in Australia and Europe. People forget to mention that America is also one of the most beautiful lands in the world. One of the richest conservation NGOs in the world recently put on a competition for the best nature photograph taken by one of its members. As most of The Nature Conservancy‘s members come from the US, this means most of the photos were of America. The photo above is my vote for the winning entry, but it is worth browsing through some of the other photos entered if you’re interested in nature photography.
