Travel Photography Competition – week 89

Pawel Kucharski Photography‎ - Tulips in the Netherlands

Hello all and welcome to the 89th edition of our popular weekly Travel Photography Competition! This week we are looking at the photos posted on our Facebook page between 30th April and 5th May.

Our first winner this week comes from The Netherlands and is a wonderful shot of a tulip field at twilight. The tulip was originally grown in modern-day Turkey but was imported into Holland in the 16th century and is now cultivated in great fields of magnificent colour all across the country. Today, the Netherlands is known around the world for its tulips and other flowers, and is affectionately called the “flower shop of the world.”

Our second winning photo this week was taken in Chefchaouen, the so called Blue Pearl, in Morocco. Chefchaouen lies in the Rif Mountains, inland from Tangier and Tetouan, and was founded in 1471 as a small fortress, built to counter Portuguese invasions of northern Morocco. The city’s primary attraction is the medina with its whitewashed walls, tinted with blue which were originally decorated by Jewish immigrants.

And our final winner this week also comes from the wonderfully diverse land of Morocco and shows a glass of traditional Moroccan tea in Casablanca. Tea drinking is an institution in Morocco after being introduced in the 18th century, with the preferred brew being Maghrebi mint tea served with rich tea cookies, fresh green mint leaves, local “finger shape” brown sugar, and in ornate tea glasses and pots.
