Travel Photography Competition – week 65

Hello everyone and welcome to the 65th edition of our popular Travel Photography Competition! This week we will be looking at photos sent into our Facebook page between  23rd and 30th October.

It’s the first edition of the Competition which we are celebrating on our new-look website! This major facelift of Hitch-Hikers Handbook took several days and there is still a lot to do, but we hope you like the results so far. Thanks to all those who have already contacted and congratulated us on this decision. We really appreciate all your words of support!

Without further delay, let us present the winners of this week’s selection. In first position we’ve got this great sunset photo taken near the village of Pervolia in Cyprus. The village, which is located 16km west of Larnaca, used to serve as a holiday place for the ancient kings and aristocracy in Cyprus. It was named after its abundant gardens and fields.

The second winner in this week’s competition was taken in the Antelope Canyon, Navajo land near Page, Arizona, USA. It’s one of the most-visited and most-photographed canyons in the country, significantly contributing towards the tourism business for the Navajo Nation. You can visit this beautiful monument of nature for $6.00 (free for children under 8 y.o.), 7 days a week. For more information, visit the official website of the Navajo Tribal Park.

And the last photo this week was taken at Porto Germeno, Greece. It’s a beach resort area located in the Attica prefecture on the north-eastern coast of the Corinthian Gulf. Nearby stands the fortress of Aigosthena, dating back to the 3rd century BC, considered one of the best-preserved ancient castles in Greece.
