We cover all natural scenery that shows pure nature only, with nothing
man-made visible in the photo – except footprints or hiking tracks! We
accept mountains, creeks, geysers, volcanoes, rivers, hills, lookouts,
views, glaciers, canyons, streams, deserts, caves, waterfalls & fiords
etc. We are looking for scenes that you would find in National Parks.
Wilderness or wildland is a natural environment on Earth that has not been significantly modified by civilized human activity. It may also be defined as: “The most intact, undisturbed wild natural areas left on our planet—those last truly wild places that humans do not control and have not developed with roads, pipelines or other industrial infrastructure.” Please keep this in mind when submitting images to our group.
By natural scenery, we mean nothing man-made can appear in the
photos – all we want to see is stunning scenery as nature intended
it to be seen. We don’t want to see people or buildings or fences or
roads or tire tracks etc – Nothing man made.
RULES UPDATE- May 2013 – the hosts will accept some images with man made items if it is clearly in a very wilderness setting, such as an old dirt road cutting through wilderness, or a small abandonned house in the midst of wilderness. IN GENERAL however we do not want PEOPLE or man-made items to appear in the scene. the hosts will use their discretion as to what to accept.
Underwater shots and images of Animals will only be accepted if the
wilderness is included in the image. We will accept SOME macros of wildlife and flowers, but we prefer larger scenery shots. Again – it is up to the discretion of the hosts.
Please do not be discouraged if your image is not accepted as we all view things differently and there are to many images to be able to accept them all.
