The first winner in this week’s competition was taken at sunset on the beach in The Hague, Netherlands. The Hague is the third largest city in the Netherlands (after Amsterdam and Rotterdam) and is the capital of the South Holland province.  The city is the seat of the Dutch government, as well as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court.

In second position this week, we’ve got this stunning shot of Sgùrr nan Gillean mountain and Loch na Creitheach, seen from Camasunary bay on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, UK. Isle of Skye is the largest island in the Inner Hebrides and it’s popular among visitors for its varied species of wildlife (especially birds) and stunning coastal walks and hikes.

And the last gorgeous photo we’d like to show you this week, was also taken in the Netherlands, on Terschelling island. Terschelling is one of the West Frisian Islands and it’s situated between Vlieland and Ameland islands. A large part of the island is a nature reserve and its main source of income is tourism. Many visitors are also drawn to the island for the annual Oerol theatre festival.
