Travel Photography Competition – week 99

KOEphotography - The Menara gardens, Marrakech, Morocco

Hello everyone and welcome to the 99th edition of our popular weekly Travel Photography Competition! This week we are looking at the photos posted on our Facebook page between 10th and 16th July.

This week’s competition have been slightly delayed due to our recent hitchhiking tripette to our friends’ wedding, during which our access to the web has been hugely limited. You will be able to read about our experience soon, but I can tell you now that hitchhiking with a suit and a massive wedding gift is not at all impossible… :)

So let’s have a look at the three stunning winners in this week’s competition and we hope these lovely photos will be a source of inspiration to you for your upcoming trips.

The first gorgeous photo was taken by Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, Canada a glacially-fed lake that is located in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of 1,885 m (6,183 feet). 

Banff is the oldest National Park of the Rocky Mountains and it comprises numerous glaciers, ice fields, thick pine forests and stunning alpine landscapes. The entry fees vary between $3.90 and $9.80 (student/adult). For more information, visit the Park’s official website.

In second position this week we have a lovely photo taken in the Menara gardens in Marrakesh, Morocco with the stunning Atlas Mountains in the background. The gardens were established in the 12th century by Abd al-Mu’min and the pavilion, from which the name of the gardens derives, was built in the 16th century during the Saadi dynasty rule.

Marrakesh is the 4th largest city in the country and the most important of Morocco’s four former imperial cities. Its old town has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
