Travel Photography Competition – week 96
In this week’s competition we have for you 3 lovely shots from across Asia and Europe which we hope will inspire you when deciding your next destination. So let’s take a trip, from the mountains of Italy to the temples of Cambodia and onto the road to Luang Prabang in Laos.
The winning photo this week was taken on the road to Luang Prabang in Laos. Landlocked Laos contains two different mountain ranges, the Annamites in the north-east and the Luang Prabang Range in the north-west. Its principle tourist destinations include the UNESCO listed Luang Prabang with its temples, colonial era architecture, and vibrant night market; and the laid-back capital of Vientiane sitting on the banks of the Mekong river.
This wonderful shot was sent in by first time winner Mark Vax. Congratulations Mark!
Our second placed photograph this week was shot in the Pale di S. Martino, Dolomites, Val Venegia, Trentino, Italy. The Pala group of mountains covers an area of 240 km2 and include a large plateau (altopiano delle Pale) spanning 50km2 at an altitude of between 2500 and 2800m. The highest peaks are Vezzana which stands at an impressive 3,192 m and Cimon della Pala at 3,184 m.
This scenic image was sent in by Francesco Damin from Busto Arsizio in Italy. His passion for hiking and photography makes a great match which you can see in his stunning photos. For more visit his 500px portfolio or his Flickr photostream.
And finally this week we have an interesting image of Banteay Srei, in the Angkor region, Cambodia. The 10th century temple of Banteay Srei lies near the hill of Phnom Dei, 25 km north-east of the main temple site and is notable for its red sandstone material and elaborate decorative wall carvings which many consider to be the finest surviving example of Angkorian art.
This striking photo was sent by Paul Lemons, another first time winner who hails from Sheffield in the United Kingdom. Congratulations Paul! If you like this, then check out his Flickr photostream for more shots from his travels around the world.
