Travel Photography Competition – week 105

Hello everyone and welcome to the 105th edition of our popular weekly Travel Photography Competition! This week we are looking at the photos posted on our Facebook page between 23rd and 29th August.

The first winning picture in this week’s competition shows Kirkjufell mountain located on the northern coast of Iceland‘s Snæfellsnes peninsula, near the town of Grundarfjörður. Kirkjufell literally means “church mountain” but truth be told it’s more of a hill than a mountain since it’s only 463m high.
