Hello fellow Steemians!

Welcome to my 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Australian Monday - where the winner of the weekly round will be able to participate for the total of 200 SBD! Today, you can participate by submitting your personal pictures from your travels to the continent of Australia. I am also adding New Zealand to the same challenge as there were some concerns from other Steemians as to which continent NZ belongs to.

Your entries need to be submitted by 8 AM Central European Time in order to be considered for the challenge with a description of approximately 30 to 50 words. Only use of personal images will be accepted and only one picture can be submitted for a daily photo challenge. Ten winning photos will receive a bigger upvote from me and ten runners-up will get a smaller one.

Chosen from the ten winning entries, the absolute winner of the day will receive extended publicity in my post tomorrow morning. I will also visit his/her blog to upvote one of the most recent posts. The winning picture of the daily challenge will then automatically enter other rounds with the absolute winner gaining approximately 200 SBD in total.

Please see the winner of Asian Sunday and give him your support if you like his image to be the one winning the weekly price and entering the other stages of the 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge. You can vote for him by upvoting his winner announcement post below:

@justdentist Asian Sunday entry:

Cormorant Fisherman in China. Here is one of my favorite photos from our trip to China last year. I also featured it in my "Faces of China" post. If you take part in Tomas, aka @czechglobalhosts, contest for a longer period of time, you'll might have seen some photos of the fisherman. After being a fisherman for several decades he now mainly works in the tourist industry as a model. I guess it's kind of a win-win-situation for him and tourists like us. He's wearing his traditional outfit. Once in a lifetime experience! Have a great week everybody.

Franz Josef Glacier

Or in native Māori language: Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere. The glacier is about 12 km long and is really special because of location close to the coastline. As most glaciers they have patterns of advance and retreat. The Franz Josef Glacier advanced till 2008 but since then there is a massiv retreat. We were lucky in 2010 to walk up to the glacier and onto in. Nowadays you have to take a helicopter, fly up and on top of the glacier to have a chance to walk on it. Nevertheless it was a fantastic day at the glacier.

what a beautiful view

·

That is so awesome. I didnt know there was Southern Lights. They look so cool.

·
·

Thanks . They are the same phenomenon as the Northern lights.

·

Thank you so much for your wonderful image!

·
·
·

We tried to catch them last time we were in Tasmania but failed to see any! Next time!

·
·

Yes has to be a reasonable KP to see them as Tassie is only 42 south.

·

Amazing! You're lucky to have already been there :) Good job!

Australian wildlife and marine life is particularly amazing! On the East coast of Australia, Turtles come and lay eggs on the beach from Nov to January and from January to March little hatchling make their way to the water. The beach of MonRepos close to Bundaberg is protected for this reason. To protect the green turtle species, rangers take you in safe way to the beach to observe them and give educational talks. This photo was taken 2 years ago in our Easter trip to Bargara where we got to spot this one on the beach.

What a little cutie:)....

·

Yes so tiny!!

The magnificent view from Roys Peak near Wanaka towards the southern Alps. It's quite a hike to get up there, but totally worth it. When I was there for sunset I was the only one sticking around in the freezing winds. But I was rewarded with beautiful light.

·

That's insane! Thanks for sharing this great shot with us!

·

Michael, this is such an amazing shot. Than you.

·

Yep, another amazing image of yours!

This photo is from Rottnest Island in Western Australia. The island is commonly called "Rotto" in Australia, we tend to abbreviate everything over here. It's a beautiful island that is protected and famous for it's healthy population of quokkas

We haven't done the West coast yet but Rottness is definitely in the bucket list!

·
·

The west coast is beautiful!!

·
·
·

we have no doubt about it ;-)

·

What an amazing image! Thank you so much for your wonderful contribution. Tomas

I encountered these cute guys on a road trip from Canberra to Victoria. A mob of around 10 kangaroos were hopping around on an open arid field between scattered trees and bushes. To me, this scene is as Australian as it can be. =)

Yay! Kangaroos! @itchyfeetdonica, you already know what song plays in my head when I see this picture. I am glad you posted it here as well.

·
·

Cool, thanks! I went to a Didgeridoo performance here last Saturday! :D

·

That looks like real Australia:).....

·
·

It does right? ;)

Skyline of Brisbane

At first sight I did not like the City ofBrisbane. But when we visited it the last time my mind changed. The city has a lot to offer and views like this one are really one of it. Skyline of the City with the Story Brdige in front of it.

Thank you so much for your contribution and support. Tomas

·
·

thanks for that awesome contest. still one of the best on steemit.

Nitmiluk National Park is one of a hell of a national park. There, you can swim in huge natural pool in which amazing waterfall are flowing. During the rain season, that's a different story and you better avoid swimming because of the potential presence of crocodiles!

Location: Katherine, Australia.

·

What a fabulous image! Thank you so much for your participation. Tomas

·
·

Thank you Tomas, glad to share this amazing place with you and all the steemit a ;)

I think that nature represents New Zealand better than anything else, and due to that I picked this image. It was taken at a place quite close to my house, I only got to visit there once, but I can't wait to visit again

Thank you so much for your contribution. Tomas

Fraser Island
It's not just a sandy island covered with trees. It has the most gorgeous beaches and lakes such as lake McKenzie. I've been told that should be overloaded with tourists. But luckily we were of season and the weatherforecast was terrible for that day. As you probably can see in the photo, they were wrong :D

I really love Australia. The people, the climate, the nature, the freedom and of course the beautiful sunsets. This one is close to Broome. Just sitting in the sand with a beer. So very nice

Looking forward to some amazing clicks and best of luck in advance yo all of participants

I'm looking forward to going to Australia.

Of course, this past weekend was the start of the F1 season. My wife and I are thinking of attending a race in Melbourne and touring the country.

I love the photos!

Hi friend how are you going to be all healthy. This is the result of my photoshoot today at ule lheu beach Banda Aceh Indonesia. Me and my friends while playing on the beach also enjoy the sunset atmosphere unfortunately we can not see the sun directly we can see the light just because its clouds fog very thick. I took this photo using camera smartphone samsung galaxy grand2

·

I think you got your das wrong... The challenge is Australia and New Zealand today. Tomas

·
·

I apologize because I have made a mistake @czechglobalhosts whether my mistake is due to incorrect entry to the contest schedule or something else.

Nice photos. they deserve an award. It is very nice. great work

All pictures are beautiful 😍

when the sun began to sink in the western horizon. then the red light again illuminates the vast ocean. making the scenery beautiful to enjoy. that's the beauty of the sunset. and not always we can enjoy it. except when the weather is sunny. and we are on the shore

This is my entry for the Monday new Zealand by @czechglobalhosts

This is the mirror image of mesmerizing and historical mount cook Arokai.....
Aoraki / Mount Cook became known to Māori after their arrival in New Zealand some time around the 14th Century CE. The first Europeans who may have seen Aoraki / Mount Cook were members of Abel Tasman's crew, who saw a "large land uplifted high" while off the west coast of the South Island, just north of present-day Greymouth, on 13 December 1642 during Tasman's first Pacific voyage. The English name of Mount Cook was given to the mountain in 1851 by Captain John Lort Stokes to honour Captain James Cook who surveyed and circumnavigated the islands of New Zealand in 1770. Captain Cook did not sight the mountain during his exploration.

Hi! What an incredible image again. I am running a random check of some images and need you to provide an ownership to this image. Thank you so much for your understanding and look forward to your reply. Tomas

·
·

No problem you can checkout, how do you want me to provide my ownership?
im not a professional photographer , its my hobby.

·
·
·

I am sure you can find the way to prove it is your personal image, there are many different ways of doing that! I am just afraid that this is not your personal image. If that is the case just stay away from my challenge. If I am mistaken then please accept my deepest apology in advance. I just need to have a proof that your work is genuine. Tomas
