Travel Photography Competition – week 63
Here in Barcelona the weather has become really miserable and nearly winter-like but with all these beautiful pictures you sent us, we feel like if we were still on holiday :-)
In fact, the first winning photo comes from Italy which we visited this summer. The winning photo was taken in Verona, located on the Adige river in Veneto municipality. The city which has been popularised by Shakespeare, who set three of his plays there (Romeo and Juliet, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and The Taming of the Shrew) is also and architectural gem and has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO.
The second winner in our competition was taken by the Maligne Lake, in Jasper National Park Alberta, Canada. The lake is one of the most photographed locations in the world and it’s famous for the colour of its water, the surrounding peaks and the glaciers visible in the distance. Jasper is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, spreading over 10,878 km2 (4,200 sq mi). It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984. Visit the park’s official website for more information.
This stunning photo was taken by Pierre Leclerc from Quebec Canada “where he learned to appreciate nature and the great outdoors from an early age. He first held a camera when he was fourteen years old and has been experimenting with the medium of photography ever since”. This talented photographer specialises in Landscape, Travel, Nature and Wildlife Photography. Visit his Facebook page Pierre Leclerc Photography and his website for more!
And the last winner in this week’s competition shows the Château du Rivau, a castle in Lémeré (Indre-et-Loire), in the Touraine region, France. The picture-book castle-palace is located in the centre of the Loire valley and is one the smallest castles in the surrounding area. It was constructed in the the middle of the 15th century and remains essentially Medieval in design and is famed for its horses. Gaining fame as the stables, the King’s horses were kept and trained as well as being the place that Joan of Arc procured her own steeds.
