At Lake Mohave in Nevada last summer, contributor Tracy Huff took this photo of Billy Floyd, a double amputee, sailing his catamaran. Huff said although Floyd lost his legs in a hang gliding accident, it hasn't slowed him down. "He still hang glides, paraglides, kiteboards, sails, flies (remote control) airplanes, mountain climbs and dreams of building the world's fastest catamaran," Huff wrote.

As the sun started to set, Karen Hanna held up a dandelion to the light and captured the details of droplets on the plant.

While driving to Mount Hood in Oregon for a hike, Wayne Cragg stopped to take in the view while traveling on an empty road.

Christine Dorfer captured a nighttime shot of the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, which was originally built for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915.

Marcell Turner snapped this photo of one of the entrances to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. "There are many buildings and areas in the city that remind me of Rome, and this is a shot of one if those places," Turner said.
