Travel Photography Competition – week 31

Hello everyone and welcome to the 31st edition of our weekly Travel Photography Competition. This week we’d like to show you photos sent to our Facebook page between 24th and 31st January.

Our first winner is this jaw-dropping winter shot taken in South Haven, Michigan, USA. South Haven, being located on Lake Michigan,at the mouth of the Black River, has always been a port city. The South Pier Lighthouse, which you can see in the picture, is over 110 year old!

This great photo was sent by Ryan Cusentino, a very talented photographer who was also one of the runners-up in our Travel Photography Competition of the Year 2012.

The second winner in this week’s selection is this lovely night photo showing the northern lights over Héðinsfjörður, Iceland. It’s a 6km long northernmost fjord of the Tröllaskagi area in northern Iceland. Apparently it’s perfect for trout fishing and, as we can see, for aurora-spotting!

And the last winning photo this week came all the way fro Honduras.
