Augusta National is known for its pristine beauty, and nowhere is that more apparent than at Amen Corner — the famous stretch of holes that encompasses Nos. 11, 12 and 13.

For anyone lucky enough to walk the course during Masters Week, taking in the view overlooking the 11th green and 12th tee is on the top of the must-experience list.

But if you’re watching at home like most of us, GOLF photographer Stephen Denton took a series of photos to give us a patron’s-eye view of Augusta National’s most stunning vistas. It’s the next-best thing to being there! Check out the photos below, and enjoy the view.
