I visited Antelope canyon on both my trips to this part of USA, as this is a thing you can hardly skip when you are in the area. So this photo below is from my first tip, back in September 2014. There is nothing much to be said, lets the photography speaks for itself.

@rinawonderlands Asian Sunday entry:

This is one of a beautiful sunrise i had when i was in Gili Trawangan island, a small island near Lombok. No cars, no bike is allowed in this island. But unfortunately we can't go visit the island for a while now, since the earthquake hit Lombok last month. Many building were damaged, and all the people were evacuated from the island for their safety.

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

The way the light hits the ice in Antarctica can create some pretty unique colours. But when it’s overcast, often the icebergs can come across a beautiful vibrant blue that really stand out against there surroundings.

View of the National Mall with the Washington Monument in the background in Washington DC. Built to commemorate George Washington, once commander-in-chief of the Continental Army and the first US President, the Washington Monument is - at 554 feet 7 11⁄32 inches (169.046 m) tall - the tallest monumental column in the world .



Hey, my submission is from the total opposite side of the Mall. Great shot.


Thank you so much for your submission. What a great city Washington is!

Wonderful Weather

Its so refreshing to get a good wet downpour during a hot summer afternoon. I really enjoy seeing the sun come out following the rain. The moisture tends to bring out a lot more color adding to beauty of the landscape.
This wonderful scene was recently captured in Sedona Arizona USA.


Wow, just spectacular!

This was taken a few days ago in Sedona, Arizona during the monsoon season where we get all kinds of unique and interesting weather and lighting conditions. The mountain is named Cathedral Rock. And it sure was a beautiful scene in my opinion.


That is an awesome shot. Love that place!

Taken on a 20 km hike around Upper Kananaskis Lake. This was one the last leg, we could almost see the end but we were so tired! We came across this sight of dead tree trumps brought down into the lake from melting glaciers only to get washed up across the lake and rest on this shore to bake in the sun forever. The flowers somehow growing along the rocky shore is what really caught my eye, it was a peaceful place to rest for a few minutes with no one in sight.

Love how unspoiled nature looks. Thank you for your shot!

My today’s photo is from my trip to USA back in year 2014. It is from one of the nicest places on Earth called Yellowstone. This was the first National park in US and most probably the first on the world. It is well known by its geothermal features and as well for its wildlife and ecosystem.

love the unique brillant colors ~ ✨ ~


Seeing the pics from there are just making me go there at some point. Truly spectacular.

Xkeken Cenote in Yucatan

Yucatans Cenotes are connected by a network of underground rivers. One of my favourite Cenotes was Xkeken that is full of dripstones. I bought a snorkel and dived to the ground of the cave.

I have also posted this photo on my blog.


That looks like from a movies shot scene. Unreal!

Hi @czechglobalhosts
Below is my entry:

Linn Cove Viaduct is one of the longest bridges built with concrete and total length of 1,243 feet. The bridge was built back in 1987 as a last part of Blue Ridge parkway . The bridge is located on slopes of Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina.

The structure resembles snake and rugs the mountain like a snake. The design of the bridge is sentimental bridge. The blue ridge parkway is famous for its scenic beauty in fall colors.


That is a pretty magnificent construction. Thank you for your entry and have a great weekend. Tomas


Thanks a lot czechglobalhosts

This beautiful landscape is in the wonderful Yellowstone National Park, USA. I took this photo on a lake in the park. The colors in this place leave you breathless. The nature is exuberant and I remember that I only thought about the peace, tranquility and emotion I felt when I was there.



Love those shades of blue and dynamics of your image. Well done!

This is one of my favourite shots of Toronto's skyline that I took from the Toronto Islands. I used an ND-Filter to make the water look smooth and silky. In combination with the colour key it looks almost like the city is floating on a big cloud.



Truly outstanging image. Well done!


Thank you! 😊


This is a picture of the US Capitol Building in Washington DC. After walking about 6 miles from Arlington Cemetery and stopping and multiple monuments along the way, the Capitol was the final stop of the day. I was glad that there was some clouds in the sky to make it look more dramatic.


Nice to see you participating Wes, great shot!

Thanks again Tomas. Shared on twitter promoting good quality content on #Steemit. Stephen

Reflection of the Empire State on a pond. I took this photo after a summer rain, a few hours after the rain the sky was very clear, but there were some ponds on the street. While I was walking I saw this reflection and I decided to take this photo of one of the most famous buildings in Manhattan.

If you come to Canada, I think Niagara Falls is the first place you need to see. It is both height, volume that makes Niagara beautiful and special. It is known that the waterfall has grown backwards for 12 thousand years and it is estimated that the worlds fastest flowing waterfall in the future.

I just love the shadows and blues in this photo! Sure, a photo cannot really capture the atmosphere of a place, but I think this photo of the Vancouver harbour, taken from Stanley Island, does a pretty good job!


Hope you guys have a great weekend!
Keep exploring...

the best contest ever

very good contest sir

We can find everything in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Here, the grand entrance of the Baccarat room for the wealthiest of this world.
The peacocks are beautiful, with beading, gems and details. It almost gave me the urge to learn how to play to get in, but I'm not ready to lose my shirt.


This was taken on a trip to Las Vegas to the Steem Creator Conference. Even though I have lived for many years in the US, I never had been to Vegas since I am not a gambler and am not attracted to opulence.
Coming to town, this felt to me like a symbol for what Vegas stands for. You drive through an endless desert with cacti and many fallen down, abandoned ole trailer homes. But as you come closer, the roads get wider, everything is new and even the cacti are artificial.


If you want to compete in this contest, make sure the photo is yours, it was taken in North America and add the required description of at least 30 words ;)

How to participate in this contest ?
