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:
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! 🇵🇹
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😁
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.
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.
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..
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"
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 ;).
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.
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 🙂
