During winter's doldrums, it's hard to leave the warmth and comfort of your home to go explore the world; Landscapes 2.0 is a site filled with images to inspire the wanderlust in all of us.

Landscapes 2.0 primarily showcases the expertise of the featured photographers and their expensive HDR cameras. For non-photographers, however, the site serves as a form of crowdsourced travel inspiration.

There is a simple voting system next to each photo; users can rate images up and down accordingly, and the top 10 are featured on a separate page.

At a time when the stress of the stagnant economy and the upcoming holiday shopping frenzy has spirits flagging all over the world, it's images like these that remind us of the inherent beauty in nature. Sometimes all the respite we need lies in a change of destination.
