Searching for a winner in our annual Best of 2013 contest was a true pleasure. We wanted to share some of the joy by featuring a few of our favorite photos that showcase breathtaking landscapes. These images weren't among our 11 winners, but we wanted to honor them with a gallery that will transport you to snowy mountaintops, red canyons, and other beautiful corners of the world. Bon voyage!
Reader jleebeme says about the cover photo (above):
"This is the Thomas Murphy barn, located along Mormon Row in Antelope Flats in the Grand Teton National Park. It was established and built in the 1920s. It is located a few hundred yards north of the John Moulton Homestead and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997."
