Let me start with my recent shoot, capturing stunning sunset on Turkish Riviera!
Looking forward your pictures!
The photos I made that I like most are definitely from Thailand. But I couldn't decide for Landscape or cityscape, so one of each.
Sunset at Noppharat Thara Beach:
Thunderstorm in Bangkok:
+1 for the cityscape!
Fantastic views, indeed hard to pick the best one!
Polish sea beaches are also beautiful! Especially when they are empty 😉
Agree! Below, my last week's view during the morning run, with a rising sun:
Slightly different from the Portuguese beaches which also stole my heart ❤️
For the cityscape, I'll go with Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, separated by the Duero river! 🇵🇹
Great idea !!!
Here is my favorite landscape 📷 from Glacier park MT
Great view, North American national parks have definitely some kind of unique, unforgettable atmosphere, hope I'll be able to extend my visit list to this place!
Oh fab! I thought at start it's from my beloved Yosemite NP. I have to visit Glacier as well, then.
Probably some of the best landscapes I've seen are in the island of Madeira, in the Atlantic Ocean. Gone through my photos, and have selected the following:
Heard much about stunning views of this famous diamond in Portuguese crown, this is a really good example!
Here are some of the photos I took while visiting Svalbard in the arctic circle. I highly recommend visiting Spitsbergen for every hiking lover. It's really a wilderness - don't forget to take a shotgun for protection😁
Any close encounter?
Polar bears are common and they aren't friendly. We were lucky not to meet them. On the other side, the arctic fox is adorable.
Woooooo ! That's unique! And doesn't look that much cold!
It was July, Sun was shining non-stop 24 hours a day. Not very cold, probably lowest of 5 degrees celsius.
Wow, one of the most distant places human can reach! Even more impressive you were lucky enough to experience polar day personally 🌅
I love this challenge and I am really tempted and will try not to spam the post 😁. Here are a few shots I have taken during my travels.
Tahquamenon Falls, Michigan.
Twin Peaks, California.
The Gateway Arch, Missouri.
Woooooooow!!!! Beautiful views! If you call it "spam", I'm all for it 😄
Thank you! 😁 Here is behind the scenes photo, BEWARE to fully cover up/use lots of bug spray if you ever decide to visit this place. The mosquitos are on steroids. I had to wear a hat with a net to protect my face.
Here are two more panoramic shots, multiple photos put together to create one view of Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
The National Mall (Washington Monument on the left. Thomas Jefferson Memorial on the right) , Washington D.C..
So much iconic landscapes from inspiring perspective, you're a true explorer, Moe!
National Arboretum - Washington DC
Always love going there and smelling all the plants blooming, relaxing in the grass.
Vegas in daylight... Not so obvious shot of this unforgettable place, great to see it! 😎
Good news, @ChadTurner! The registration for Perform is open!
Yes, it's going to be in Vegas!!!! 😃
AWESOME!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!
One of my favorite places and story has to be about Heart Island (Boldt Castle) on the border of NY and Canada, in Alexandrea Bay, home of the 1,000 Islands! (Yes, that's where the salad dressing originated from)
Heart Island was purchased by an immigrant (Georg Karl Boldt from Prussia) who rose the ranks in NYC and became very wealthy. Though his wealth was great, his love for his Wife (Louise Augusta Kehrer) was even greater.
Georg purchased Heart Island and began construction on a what would be a birthday present for his Wife. Just prior to Louise's birthday she passed away. Broken hearted, Georg telegraphed a letter to the constructions crews to drop their tools and leave the Island immediately. Georg would never return to the property again. The Castle was 97% complete by the time of Louise's passing. The property remained abandoned for years and slowly dilapidated from the elements until it was officially acquired by the thousand Island Bridge Authority with two stipulations. First, since Louise never got to spend the night let alone see the Castle, nor shall anyone spend the night at Boldt Castle. Lastly, the Castle will never be completed more then the 97% that it was when Louise died.
Such a heart breaking story, but there are also comical parts to Boldt Castle. Georg Boldt also constructed a place for his Mother in-law to stay. Not being too fond of his Mother in-law, he constructed her own house next to the Island.
Georg was fully aware that Louise's mother was very prone to sleep walking. So he ensured plenty of windows and door for her to exit her residence from:
If you look at the first picture you can see the little house surrounded by water just past Boldt Castle. In the rainy season the house has water right up to the doors!
I share the Iguazú Falls, north of my country, Argentina.
The name Iguazú comes from the Guarani words "i" meaning "water", and "ûasú " meaning "big". Legend has it that a deity planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In a rage, the deity sliced the river, creating the waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.
And from the South
The lighthouse who inspired Jules Verne to write the famous "The Lighthouse at the End of the World"
We have a balance! After seeing in this thread pictures from northern corner of the world in Spitsbergen, now we got a southern one as well, great views Daniel!
Wow, lots of really stunning and beautiful pictures!
Kudos to all who have already posted!
And i must say it's really hard! I could spent hours going through our photos...
Picked some from tenerife, corsica, sri lanka, austria ... try to find out which is which ;).
@zietho Interesting challenge! My ideas below:
Challenge inception, great idea Zietho 😄 Thank you for sharing your pictures, really quality selection!
Am I still in time to join?
Took those photos when traveling to Chile in 2015. It was a road trip I made riding a Triumph Tiger 800 from Brazil, 8000km in total.
This was taken on Antofagasta, Pacific Ocean.
All those below were on Atacama Desert.
Of course it's not too late, especially for sharing another pack of so inspiring views from distant places 😄 It's really impressing to read your trip background, sounds like a journey of life!
Another one late to the game. Took some nice landscape pics this summer, but these ones are special. I got myself a camera modified for IR and took a bike ride around Gdansk to test it out. All pics taken in the IR wavelength, so don't get fooled by the whites 🙂
Looks so familiar and so different in the same time, thanks for your captures of Gdansk!
Beautiful pictures! 😍 you are very talented @jaroslaw_orlows!
Hopefully it's not too late, but here's some from California and Michigan
I wanted to add some pictures from Austria. And also one from a winter landscape since everybody seems to prefer summer.
Austrian Alps in the winter! 💙⛷⛷⛷
Stunning views, great to see some winter shots here as well!
Lovely shots, they are crystal clear, what camera are you using?
Here are some of the photos from the south side of India.
These definitely looks beautiful than what it is captured here coz beauty of nature is unexplainable.
Fantastic landscapes! So pleasant to see this kind of views on rainy, cold morning here in Gdansk 😎
Beautiful photos from all over the world, I love this thread!! 😍
So I am a few months late, but I thought hey, let me share some of my fav cityscapes and landscapes with ya'll anyway!
Rock City often gets a bad rap, but I L❤️VED walking around doing some urbex photography!
I will always cherish my memories of this trip to the home of Dynatrace! 💝
I think this was the most breathtaking sunrise I've ever seen...maybe because I'm not a morning person! 🤣
...and lastly, one of my favourite regions in South Africa: the Overberg.
My sis-in-law lives in Swellendam with her family and we visited them in August when the canola fields were in full bloom 🌻
And this sunrise... oh! jaw-dropping experience! My favorite! 😍
Unexpected package of another great views, nice to start a day with them! 🌇
Great! Where did you capture this view, except it's surely somewhere in Far East? 😊
