7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Asian Sunday week #51 - winner announcement!

@amyalfatasya Asian Sunday entry:

Enjoy the beauty of the sunset on Saneey beach, Aceh Indonesia. This beach is located far from the capital of the large Aceh district. I took this picture and had to pass a road that was very far from the main road. And the natural scenery on this beach is very beautiful with a combination of mountains and sea.

@vinceboisgard Australian Monday entry:

One thing I know for sure about the Australian outback is that it is always a calling for new adventures. Driving the open roads, being lost and discover the real beauty of the country. Being amazed the clouds and each sunset you can possibly see... Take me back there.

Next frame from the frozen Baltic Sea coastline shot back to February, 2014. Finally the cold started to retreat and in the evening even got some water on the ice surface, adding even some more reflection. Shot with very wide angle lens.

I took this photo in Kampala, the capital of Uganda during my visit there. Kampala is located on the northern edge of Lake Victoria and my hotel happened to be located right along the lake. On the morning of my departure, I took a walk around the hotel ground and took this shot with Lake Victoria in the background.

This photo was shot at a 'Gerewol' in a remote corner of Niger's Sahara desert near Lake Chad. A Gerewol is a gathering of nomadic Wodaabe people who come together for a few days and (amongst other things) dance together for many hours. This is a photo of one such dance at sunset.


Amazing shot. I am looking forward to more of your images. Welcome to Steemit @timothyallen.


Warm welcome to Steemit and to my contest. That is quite an unusual image and I love it!

Desert is very interesting environment. Nature is so diverse. How tough is to survive with so little water? But still some animals and plants adapt to conditions there.
I didn’t see many deserts, but from those I did, I would point out Namib Desert as most beautiful one. What about you?

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago on a recovery run with my son and daughter. I just love the atmosphere of the shot. I ran through this magical forest next to the First River in a town called Stellenbosch in South Africa.


Arrived in Douz, we are finally in the desert of sand with the passage some oases (greenery). The ballad camels is optional.Il must therefore strongly hold on the climb and especially when the dromedary is back! We suddenly switch backwards and forwards! But what a moment of relaxation, silence ... and finally take the time to take full eyes ...


Sahara, Morocco
This time I decided to use a Black & white image of the desert as it gives it some Mystic / Epic effect. I took the shot on new years eve 2016/2017 on my travel trough the Sahara desert in Morocco.

The Fort of Qaitbay is a 15th-century defensive fortress located on the Mediterranean sea coast, in Alexandria, Egypt. It was erected on the exact site of the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria, which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Now, it is a popular meeting point for the evening walk.


Tannery in Fes, Morocco

The tanneries of Fes are an amazing place to visit. They are located in the old town which makes them popular with tourists but much less popular with locals who have to bear the smell of the tanning process.

I have also posted this photo on my blog.



The beautiful red sea with a backdrop of hotel ruins in Hurghada/Egypt. Before the revolution lots of houses and hotels were built, because tourism was blooming and economy was rising. After the revolution, no one had money any more and it was and still is hard to get materials, so now there are lots of ruins, half built houses standing around. At least that's what some Egyptians told us, but others debated differently. I think they didn't want tourists to know the whole truth, we were to just enjoy the beautiful sides of the country - of which there are lots!

The crossroad of Civilizations

Very interesting contrast of golden sand dunes and approaching modern buildings of Giza, Egypt. Yes, actually the magic pyramids are very close, but you don't see them since they are behind me :)

Shot with long tele-photo lens to compress the perspective a lot

Enjoy the scenery :)
