Travel Photography Competition – week 101

Simon Owens - Whitby Abbey, North Yorkshire, England, UK

Hello everyone and welcome to the 101st edition of our popular weekly Travel Photography Competition! This week we are looking at the photos posted on our Facebook page between 25th and 31st July.

This week’s results are slightly delayed due to the fact that we have been recently working loads on the promotional video for our next travel project the Long Way Home, which you will be able to see soon.

But let us take a look first at the three stunning photos which received the highest number of your “likes” in the previous week.

In first position we’ve got a lovely image of Whitby Abbey located in North Yorkshire, England, UK, a ruined Benedictine abbey overlooking the North Sea that helped inspire Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula. It is now a Grade I Listed building in the care of English Heritage.
