Travel Photography Competition – week 57

Hello everyone and welcome to the 57th edition of our popular Travel Photography Competition! This week we will be looking at photos sent into our  Facebook page between 20th and 27th August.

The first winning shot in this week’s competition shows an abandoned house in the village of Dsegh, Lori Province, Armenia. Dsegh used to be known as Tumanyan due to the fact that it’s the birthplace of the most appreciated Armenian poet, Hovhannes Tumanyan.
