My "Daily Ray of Hope" Photos

One of my favorite nature-related things is the Sierra Club's Daily Ray of Hope email. It's simply an interesting nature image with an inspirational quotation, every weekday morning. Anyone can submit a photo through the Sierra Club's Daily Ray of Hope Flickr group. I've been lucky enough to have had seven of mine selected. Here they are, along with the quotes they were paired with. Enjoy!
