US National Parks

I came across this today Boston.com, they have been running a photo contest where readers can submit there photos of the US National Parks. I have to say they are really breath taking and will worth the time it takes to skim through them. The contest will be judged by filmmaker Ken Burns. He has created the historical documentaries (Baseball, Civil War, War, Jazz and Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery) all have which aired on PBS. I have always admired his work, but I don't think I would want this job there are a lot of great photos and he will have a difficult time. Here are a few of the photos that I liked the best. I have to say that I am looking forward watching this series, it's set air on 27th of September.

This is the photo that I submitted.
Taken a trip to a national park? Share your photograph and tell us a little about your adventure. Legendary filmmaker Ken Burns will chose the winning photograph. The grand prize winner will also receive a signed copy of Ken's latest project "The National Parks: America's Best Idea." Check in with us for a chat with Burns in September.
