Hello everyone and welcome to the 103rd edition of our popular weekly Travel Photography Competition! This week we are looking at the photos posted on our Facebook page between 9th and 15th August.

The first winning photo shows the Sella Group in the Dolomites and was taken from Passo Pordoi, Trentino, Italy. The Sella lies north of the Marmolada and is a plateau-shaped massif with the highest peak of Piz Boè rising to an elevation of 3151 m (10,338 ft) above sea level. It is one of the most popular regions of the whole Alps, attracting climbers and hikers all around the world.

This scenic image was sent in by our frequent contributor 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.


In second place, we’ve got a goosbump-inspiring photo from the coarse and cold Iceland, which was taken in Jökulsárlón. Jökulsárlón, which literally means “glacial river lagoon”, is a large glacial lake on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park in southeastern Iceland. As with all natural attractions in Iceland, there is no entrance fee and the lake can be easily accessed using the National Highway 1.
