Travel Photography Competition – week 81
The quality of photos you send us is getting higher and higher every week and they have been an endless source of inspiration for us. This weekend the weather in Barcelona, where we’re based, has been grey and miserable, so it’s really uplifting to look at some amazing places you guys have been to.
In first position we’ve got today this amazing photo showing the Northern Lights dancing over the Callanish Stone Circle on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland, UK. The Callanish Stones are a megalithic construction of thirteen 4-metre tall stones which form a circle about 13 metres in diameter. They were erected between 2900 and 2600 BC and as some specialists suggest they were used as a prehistoric lunar observatory. They are located 0,2 miles south from the village of Callanish.
The second winner in this week’s competition was taken in the Făgăraş Mountains in Romania. They are the highest mountain range of the Southern Carpathians, in Romania with the highest peak Moldoveanu (2544 m). They are a very popular hiking, trekking and skiing destination, and are abundant in glacier lakes (photo of Bâlea lake that has previously won in our competition).
This gorgeous image was taken and sent by Zsolt Andras Szabo, who is a dentist and a fine art landscape photographer from Romania. If you are still hungry for more breathtaking shots, visit his very interesting website.
And the last photo in this week’s competition was taken at dawn on La Playa del Aguilar, Muros del Nalón, Asturias, Spain. Muros de Nalón is a small coastal town known for the cultivation of the eucalyptus tree. The sandy Aguilar beach can be reached via the AS-317 road that connects Muros de Nalón with Cudillero.
