Inspirational Sunday post: indulge yourself in the
absolute beauty of the images selected as finalists
of The Smithsonian magazine's 9th annual photo
contest which came to beckon over 14,000 pro
and amateur photographers from all 50 
States and over 100 countries.

Browsing through the 50 finalists selected by the
magazine's editors from 67,059 images is quite
an experience guaranteed to delight your eyes.
'The Smithsonian' will award the Grand Prize Winner
as well the winners in each of the five categories
of the contest: altered images, Americana, 
people, the natural world and travel.

Actually everyone's invited to designate an additional
”Reader's Choice” winner, so don't forget to cast your
vote here before the end of March (you can choose only
one picture though you're allowed to vote daily) while
all winners will be announced in early summer.
