Hello everyone and welcome to the centenary edition of our popular weekly Travel Photography Competition! This week we are looking at the photos posted on our Facebook page between 17th and 24th July.

The first winner this week is a gorgeous HDR image of a horse on the beach at Porto Germeno, Greece. Porto Germeno is a beach resort area located in the Attica prefecture on the north-eastern coast of the Corinthian Gulf. Nearby stands the fortress of Aigosthena, dating back to the 3rd century BC, considered one of the best-preserved ancient castles in Greece.

In second position we have this lovely photo showing the sky on fire and the Dyrhólaey Lighthouse located near Vík, Iceland. Dyrhólaey is a small peninsula from where there are gorgeous views of the big Mýrdalsjökull glacier to the north, black lava columns of the Reynisdrangar poking out of the sea to the east, and the stunning rugged coastline to the west. In summer, you can also spot here puffins nesting on the cliff edges.
