Hi gang, it’s time again for a sampler of some of favorite shots on Wikimedia Commons, Wikipedia’s image repository. At this point, most of you know why I think Commons is awesome. It’s the world’s biggest collection of educational photos under a free license. That means that you can download each photo without any charge and also share it with your friends and family.
Last time, I showed you some of my favorite seascape images. And I was amazed by how many people felt inspired and started to dream of their last summer vacation. Now, as we’re heading towards winter, a reflective time of year begins. What could be better to lean back in your chair and let the impressions of Mother Nature’s awesomeness wash over you? Hope you get a kick out of these!
