Travel Photography Competition – week 19
Hello everyone and welcome to the new edition of our Travel Photography Competition. As happens every weekend, we’ve got a fresh selection of stunning photographs sent to our Facebook page. from all over the planet. This week we’re reviewing pictures sent or published between 24th and 31st October.
The first winning photo this week was taken at Park Sołacki in Poznań, Poland. The park was opened in 1911 and has been arranged in the English garden style. It’s home to over 3,000 trees and 12,oo0 bushes.
This lovely autumn photo was taken by Erik Witsoe. Subscribe to his Facebook channel for more stunning shots!
This week’s second winner was taken on Santorini, a Greek island in the southern Aegean Sea, which is the southernmost member of the Cyclades island group. Santorini was formed after a massive volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements on a previously single island, and created the current geological caldera. The oldest signs of human settlement in this territory date back to the Late Neolithic period (4th millennium BC). Modern day Santorini is a thriving tourist destionation with a small wine industry, drawing the visitors in. Its traditional architecture is similar to that of the other Cyclades, with small cubical houses, made of local stone and whitewashed with various types of volcanic ash used as paint.
This lovely sunset photo was taken by Jean Claude Castor, a photographer based in Berlin who specialises mostly in panoramas, landscape and architecture photography. Like his Facebook page 030mm – Photography to receive more of his stunning shots in your news feed.
And the last photo for today was taken in the valley of the Kamchiya river, Varna province, Bulgaria. The Kamchiya is the longest river on the Balkan Peninsula and flows directly into the Black Sea. Its valley is a UNESCO-listed biosphere reserve. Most definitely it looks like a beautiful place to visit.
