I have visited Rome only once. It was enough to fall in love with this ancient city! If not the sd card size back in the days, the number of images would exceed all expectations. Let me name some of the architectural landmarks here. On the right, we have got the Tempio di Saturno. In the background, there is a beautiful church dating back to 17th century - Santi Luca e Martina. And then framed between the arches is the Septimius Severus Arch. The view was captured from the perfect spot on top of the Monte Tarpeo street.

@mibreit-photo Australian Monday entry:

This photo was taken a few years ago during a hike up to Roys Peak near Wanaka in New Zealand. The weather was very dynamic and provided some interesting play of light and shadow. I oped for a black and white here to emphasise those nice contrasts.

@crazy-andy African Wednesday entry:

For today’s African photo there is one of my favorite shots from that continent. I don’t know exactly why, but I simply like it. We can see cohesion of flora and fauna there. Big African elephant walking through the horde of impalas those graze in savannah.

What an unusual design and interesting building! Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.


This is an interesting design. Very cool shot.

Photo of Vienna, showing reflections on the Danube Canal. The photo was taking in summer when the nights are short, in the background of the image there is the illuminated building known as the Uniqa Tower.


You have captured some great atmosphere in your image. Well done.

View of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The yellow fortress is a popular viewpoint in Sarajevo, but when I visited Sarajevo earlier this year, I continued walking until I arrived at the ruins of the white fortress which offers this amazing view over the city!

I have also posted this photo on my blog to promote this contest and shared my post to my Twitter account.


Amazing shot as always Julian. Thank you so much!


Incredible shot. There is so much depth to this image. It looks like a great place to visit. You are always going to the cool places.

New Castle, Stuttgart Germany

This is a part of the New Castle in Stuttgart, the capital of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. The Lion is one part of the coat of arms of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.



Thank you so much for your contribution. Have a great day. Tomas

Together with Segovia and Avila, Toledo is one of three amazing, historical cities that you can reach very fast and easily from Madrid by train, within a day trip. The old town, that was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986 for its extensive monumental and cultural heritage, is located on top of a hill, surrounded on three sides by a bend in the Tagus River.



Wow, what an amazing place and image. Great job!


Thank you, Tomas! :-)

Here is an entry from @cendrinemedia for today's contest:

Blois is a beautiful French city on the Loire River. Its castle boasts 30,000 works of art and 564 rooms. It was the residence of seven kings and ten Queens!

Fun historical fact: The first etiquette code and the title of "Your Majesty" were introduced in Blois.

I have placed this entry at the request of @cendrinemedia because she does not have enough power to leave a comment. In this way I hope to be able to help her. So this entry is on behalf of @cendrinemedia.


A very moody atmosphere, which I really like!


Great to see some helping Steemians around. That sure is a great image.

one of my favorite places is the ammersee in bavaria. there i can live out my passion for photography with nd filter. thus it is possible for me to show the calm of the lake well. on this day i am lucky and could experience a clourful sunset



What an amazing image! Well done.


Thank you so much!

Amazing rocky shoreline of Northern Cyprus. Perfect place for landscape shootings especially when you suddenly get stunning colors on sunrise. If you re not too lazy to wake up so early :)

Enjoy the scenery :)

Truly magnificent, thank you so much!

The Ladybirds
It feels these ladybirds have been in Ventspils (Latvia) for ages! Although they have become part of the promenade since 2004, these oldies look fresh and bright every single year! Not only do they add the necessary splash of colour into the old part of town, but they also greet the passengers arriving by ferry to this unique town!


Wow, love those!


Yay, thank you!

Saint Valery sur Somme is a medieval town with narrow street going up to the too of the hill in which you can find cute little houses decorated of fishermen items or flowers.

Nice contest share to twitter..

Awesome Contest!
One Question Please...
Can we use images taken by our friends or family members to participate in the contest?
Thank You!


Hi, good question. Unfortunately, only personal images taken by the contestant. Have a great day.

Zürich is the capital of Switzerland and as many other beautiful Swiss cities, it also has its own lake. Lake Zürich has so clear water that you can see the bottom. And the mountains in the back makes this place even more beautiful! Lakeside of Zürich is just breathtaking.

Alberobello is a city in the Apulia region of Italy.
It is known for its "trulli", whitewashed stone houses with conical roofs. The district of Rione Monti, at the top of a hill, more than thousand of them.
According to legend, the Count of Conversano allowed the settlers to build dry stone dwellings (without mortar) in order to dismount them easily in case of royal inspection. Indeed, Ferdinand I of Aragon, required the payment of a tax in case of construction of fixed dwellings.
I climbed on a roof to have a good view and admire the work closer. Amazing work.
