Travel Photography Competition – week 43

Hello everyone! It’s the weekend which means that we’ve got for you three fresh stunning pictures in our Travel Photography Competition. This week we are reviewing photos  published on our Facebook page between 30th April and 7th May.

One of the winning shots this week shows one of the destinations which we are planning to include in our imminent trip, which made us even more excited!

We’ll start this week’s selection with this beautiful autumn photo which was taken by Otto Lake just outside Denali National Park in Alaska, United States. Denali National Park was established 96 years ago and contains the States’ highest mountain – Mount McKinley, which rises to the elevation of 6,194 m above sea level.

Denali National Park is a beautiful nature reserve that attracts not only climbers and hikers but also cyclists, rafters, fishing amateurs and other outdoor types.

To get more details about the park, visit their official website.

The second winner in the 43rd edition of our popular competition came all the way from Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, which we are planning to visit this very summer! The picture shows Stari Most (Old Bridge) which was originally built in the 16th century by the Ottomans. It was destroyed in 1993 during the during the Croat-Bosniak War. It was rebuild in 2004 and it’s considered one of the most emblematic sites of the country and a fine example of Islamic art in the Balkan region.

Mostar is one of the largest and most important cities in the Herzegovina region.
