Please feel free to view and comment on any of this month's entries here.

Here is what Nathan had to say about his photo:

Awesome news! I'm impressed every month by the quality of entries and talent in the PFRE community, so I'm really honored that my image was picked this month. This home is a ski-in, ski-out property on the slopes of the Telluride Resort in Colorado with gorgeous panoramic views of the San Juan Mountains (which, let's be honest, do all the heavy lifting in this shot).

From the moment I arrived, it was pretty obvious that the story of this home is the location and the views, so I really wanted to highlight that. To get the final shot, I hiked up the ski slope about a quarter-mile and shot with a 100mm lens to really accentuate the mountains in the scene. As I was setting up for the golden hour shot, a bank of clouds moved in from the west and almost spoiled it. The sun broke through for about 3 minutes right before sunset and I shot like hell! I thanked the photo gods for a tiny window of good light and just hoped I got it in focus.
