Hello fellow Steemians!

Welcome to my 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - European Thursday - 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 Europe.

See the winner of the last week´s European Thursday @itchyfeetdonica with the following entry:

You might have heard of Neuschwanstein Castle, which inspired Sleeping Beauty’s castle in Disneyland? This famous palace was commisioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat on a rugged cliff in 1868. What impressed me the most was how it blended into the stunning natural settings around.


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 winners of the previous contests of the week and give them your support if you like their images 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 them by upvoting their winner announcement posts below:

@axeman Tuesday of Antarctica and World´s Oceans entry:

The Swan. Pretty stunning colorful and calm sunset at Curonian Spit, Lithuania. And wouldn't be so much interesting without the lonely swan slowly approaching to my shooting position :) Quite a perfect model for the set. Enjoy it!


7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - African Wednesday week #79 - winner announcement!

@mibreit-photo African Wednesday entry:

It's been a while, but I finally have some new photos. Here is one, which I took last month while travelling into the Erg Chigaga in Morocco. Erg means "Sea of Sand", which is also the title of this photo here. Standing on one of the highest dunes in the Erg I could see for miles in every direction.

Front view of the Church of Saint John the Baptist, commonly known as the Rotunda of Xewkija or the Xewkija Rotunda - a majestic Roman Catholic church found in the village of Xewkija on the Maltese island of Gozo.

I have always wanted to visit one of those northern countries that dusk lasts for hours so that I can find out if it is as magical as in Greece, that lasts only a few moments! Her is one of the most cosmopolitan sunsets in Greece at the village of Naousa, on Paros island!


This is the skyline of Valletta, the capital city of Malta. I strolled in the harbor area and caught this golden hour of the day. Those honey-toned buildings were bathing in an orangeish shade. The dome is from Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and closeby is the St. Paul's Pro-Cathedral.

Wow, postcard stuff! :)) I know exactly where you took this shot from ;)

:) I remember seeing your Valletta shots too!

Curonian Stories

Amazing calm summer sunset at Curonian Gulf, Lithuania. Not a bad foreground and just perfect reflection from the water surface. A touch of long exposure to freeze dynamics of moving clouds

Enjoy it!

My picture was taken in Munich and shows Nymphenburg Castle. Behind the castle there is a large park where you can walk. The castle belongs here in Munich to my favourite places. It makes you forget your everyday life.


Bay of Kotor, Montenegro
Walking up the mountain in Kotor is very breathtaking but worth every steep step. You will have an amazing view at the bay and the big cruising ships coming in.

Mountains Malá Fatra, Slovakia
I was there as a teacher on a school trip in 2012. There was another hill on the hill when we climbed the hill. And over and over. We were still climbing. I remember one student crying out, "This is a Matrix bug!"


This is one of my all time favourite Light Paintings. The shape under the monument has be come a dear special portal of light to me. I created it with a 2m long plexi tube inserted wite and red torches. The iconic place is the Monument to the Fallen Soldiers of the Kosmaj Detachment erected in 1971 at the Kosmaj Mountain Park in Serbia.

Not Photoshop effects ;-)
if you have more questions how its done ask me please.

One of the cool things about Turkey: I can use the photos from my trip to both the european day contest AND the asian one! :)) For this day, a view from the old town, to the surrounding area of Galata Tower, and the Galata bridge; both places well worth a visit, while in Istambul!



As the most popular Church in Zagreb, St. Mark’s displays the Croatian, Dalmatian, and Slavic coats of arms along with the Zagreb’s city emblem. If you arrive here around noon you can see the changing of the guards.
