Travel Photography Competition – week 58

Hello everyone and welcome to the 58th edition of our popular Travel Photography Competition! This week we will be looking at photos sent into our  Facebook page between 28th August and 4th September.

We must admit that this week the competition was really fierce and we feel sorry we couldn’t publish all those wonderful photos which didn’t make it to the top three. They were all fabulous and we send massive thumbs up to all the skilful photographers who participate in our competition and help us discover beautiful places around the world!

The first winner in this week’s competition is this unconventional photo taken in Cody, Wyoming, USA. The reservoir which you can see in the picture was created by the Buffalo Bill Dam, which was the highest dam in the world at the time of its completion in 1910! The proximity to the Yellowstone National Park makes Cody a perfect base for everyone who wishes to visit this uniquely beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This stunning shot was taken by WiredNomads. Jordan and Kaya are an interesting couple of travellers and we highly recommend checking out their website, not only if you are into photography but first and foremost if you love adventure blogs.


The second winner was taken in Scheveningen, which is a beach resort and one of the eight districts of The Hague, Netherlands. The Hague is the third largest city in the Netherlands (after Amsterdam and Rotterdam) and is the capital of the South Holland province.  The city is the seat of the Dutch government, as well as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court.

And the last shot in this week’s competition came all the way from Iceland and shows Skógarfoss waterfall, located on the Skógá River in the south of the country. Skógafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland with a width of 25 metres (82 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft). According to a legend, “the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall. The legend continues that locals found the chest years later, but were only able to grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again. The ring was allegedly given to the local church. The old church door ring is now in a museum” (source: Wikipedia).
