Photography Contest!

I just found out about a cool contest from this blog! I can enter up to three pictures, and while I had a really hard time choosing just three, the ones that I did choose really display the beauty that the Lord has allowed me to see. So here they are; unedited, unfiltered, all awesome!
The above one was taken in the Mexican farmlands, about five weeks ago while on a mission trip to an orphanage for the handicapped placed in this gorgeous desert valley.
This was taken in July, when I was able to ride a hot air balloon for the very first time! My region was having a balloon rally, so it was really cool to see so many balloons fill the sky.
This last one was taken while on a hike at a local historic trail. (It's on a hill, that's why some of the trees are growing sideways!)

Thanks for taking a look at my pictures! I'd love to hear your comments!


  1. You picked the right photos for this contest, because I LOVE Mexico, and riding in a hot air balloon is on my list of things to do before I die. You're so lucky!

    And I love the pictures. :-)

  2. I only got to go on the tethered balloon ride, which means that I went about 30 or 40 feet up in the air and it was pretty brief. It was neat, but I still want to go on a "real" balloon ride!

  3. That would be sooooooo cool to be in a hot air balloon!

  4. The third one is my favorite...but they're all very nice! Good luck!
