This is just a frsction of the most beautiful landscapes and waterscapes in deviantART...
Surfing through newest section of waterscapes, I came across a bunch of beautiful photos. So, a waterscape feature was definitely in order.

Thank you all for the marvelous photos!
Second feature is a small selection from photography category. Something i love very much, and that's landscapes and waterscapes.  
It took me longer then i thought to collect them (when you set yourself a limit of 10 photos then you only choose those that are exceptional).
And here they are my TOP 10 landscape/waterscape photos.
