Picturing America's National Parks
Quang-Tuan Luong became the first person to photograph all 58 US national parks in 2002 and continues to do so, with over 3,600 photographs of them online. Last month, Scott Parker completed his two-year project of visiting all the national parks and documenting them in paint and pastel.

Quang-Tuan Luong's Terra Galleria has lots of great pictures to look at. You download a few desktop wallpapers of them here and here.

Thanks man, those pictures are amazing. I was considering to go to Joshua Tree next week and now I am certain that I need to go there asap.

Jeez, what beauty. I want his job.

Kind of makes this guy's mission seem pathetic.

You can't go wrong going to Joshua Tree swordfishtrombones. Man, I've got to move closer to some National Parks.

Great concept, but something's a little off about his composition. Not being a photogeek, I'm not quite sure what it is.

Luong's shots of the Petrified Forest make it look a lot more interesting than I remember - good stuff.
