Travel Photography Competition – week 40

Hello everyone and welcome to the 40th edition of our popular weekly Travel Photography Competition. Have you already decided where you’d like to travel this year? If not, maybe our competition will help you make up your mind, as every week we show you three stunning places most definitely worth visiting.

If you have recently visited a beautiful place, we encourage you to share it with us by posting it on our Facebook page and if your photo will be among the three most “liked” shots, we will publish it on our website.

This week we’re reviewing pictures sent between 6th and 13th April.

The first winning shot was taken in Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. This cracked old boat must have been there for a very long time!

The second winning picture this week was taken at Pateira de Fermentelos in Portugal. It’s a natural lake located in the triangle between the Águeda, Aveiro and Oliveira do Bairro districts. It is the largest natural lake in the Iberian Peninsula (15 km perimeter) and it’s very rich in flora and fauna.

And the last picture in this week’s selection was taken in Porto Germeno, Greece. It’s a beach resort area located in the Attica prefecture on the north-eastern coast of the Corinthian Gulf. Nearby you can find the fortress of Aigosthena, dating back to the 3rd century BC, which is considered one of the best-preserved ancient castles in Greece.
