I LOVE beards, and am of course referring to facial hair. Photographer Matthew Rainwaters took a series of images during the Beard and Mustache Championships in Anchorage, Alaska, some of which can be seen here.
The images of these bearded beauties are amazing - not only is the facial fuzz amazing, but the portraits taken by Rainwaters are also stunning. I love the portrait of the man who looks like he is composed solely of different types of fur.
