Travel Photography Competition – week 88
The first winner comes from one of the most beautiful and friendliest countries we have ever been to – the Republic of Georgia, and shows Gergeti Trinity Church near the villages of Gergeti and Stepantsminda (also known as Kazbegi). The church, which was build in the 14th century, is located at an elevation of 2170 meters, on the way to Mount Kazbegi (2535 m). The church can be reached by a 3h steep mountain hike or by a 30min jeep ride which you can purchase in one of the villages. Its isolated location on top of a steep mountain surrounded by the vastness of nature has made it a symbol of Georgia.
In second position this week, we’ve got this beautiful image taken in Yellowstone National Park, United States. Yellowstone is located primarily in the state of Wyoming, although it also extends into Montana and Idaho. It was founded in the 19th century as the first national park in the world! Its widely known for its wildlife, subalpine forests and many geothermal features. It has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
And the last great picture in this week’s competition, that we hope will inspire you to travel further, was taken in Meteora Greece. Meteora is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece and was built atop a sandstone rock. It’s located near the Pindus Mountains in the centre of the country. I think you won’t be surprised to learn that it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
