Hello fellow Steemians!
It is my great pleasure to announce the winner of 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - South American Saturday. I would like to say huge thank you to all the participants for their great entries. The number of entries yesterday was very good with many high-quality images so it was extremely hard to decide on the winning one. I encourage you to check the entries as they really were all stunning.
You can see all entries and participants in this post: 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - South American Saturday week #101 - the absolute winner takes 200 Steem!
Please give a huge shout out to the best ten competitors for taking part in the challenge and sharing their photos and experience with all of us here on Steemit:
It would be great if you can visit their blogs and appreciate their awesome photography skills with some upvotes.
However, the winner is only one and that is for me picture posted by @mrprofessor with the following entry:
Colonia del Sacramento - Uruguay. Colonia del Sacramento is one of the historic cities in Uruguay that has lived through the conflicts between Portugal and Spain. This photo was taken during one of my Hitchhiking trips where the patience not only rewards you with a ride, but also with moments of utter contemplation.
What a great contribution from @mrprofessor to the photo challenge! Unfortunately, @mrprofessor has not lately published anything that I could upvote but I will be happy to do so once he posts something. @mrprofessor amazing entry from Uruguay is qualifying for the weekly challenge where it will be competing against the previous and upcoming winners of the week:
@jpphotography Asian Sunday entry:
View of the Treasury in Petra, Jordan. While the ticket to Petra is the single most expensive entry fee I have ever paid, locals can get in for free. Many run small shops in the site, but a few teenagers are blocking access to a trail to this viewpoint demanding a fee for a "guided tour" from any tourist who wants to pass. At first I didn't bother, but when I saw them physically attacking a tourist in front of me who had also decided to ignore them and go by himself, I turned back and took an alternative route. Apart from this event, I had very positive experiences with Jordanians, so it is a shame that the local authorities allow these highwaymen to do their sketchy business at the countries' most frequented tourist site.
@rullicky Australian Monday entry:
Lovely sunset. This photo is from Sunset Beach, Port Waikato, New Zealand. This place is located at the North island on west coast, approximately 1 hour by car from Auckland. This beach is one of most popular sunset places on New Zealand!
@jpphotography Tuesday of Antarctica and world's oceans entry:
Wharariki Beach Reflections, New Zealand. Wahariki beach is one of my favourite spots in New Zealand. At low tide, the rock formations reflect beautifully in the water. Wahariki beach is also home to countless birds and sea lions.
@vcclothing African Wednesday entry:
Camping under the stars while on safari in the Sossusvlei desert in Namibia. We arrived to this camp site for the night, so in the morning we could climb the sand dunes. The days were hot but at night, the temperature was just perfect.
@itchyfeetdonica European Thursday entry:
Here's a drone shot of the stunning Durlaßboden Reservoir and the surrounding mountains in the Austrian Alps. I loved this beautiful region of Tyrol. You can enjoy breathtaking views almost everywhere after some easy hikes or drives, and the water of these alpine lakes is usually crystal clear, so reflections are common sights here.
@irvinesimages North American Friday entry:
Electric Night. Sycamore Pass lies between Black and Casner mountains and borders the huge Sycamore Canyon complex. This very powerful middle of the night thunderstorm is seen advancing through and over the pass which is a wilderness gateway to the Sedona area. This is the beauty and fury of an electric night. Sedona Arizona USA.
The winner of the weekly challenge will be selected by you based on the dollar value of this post and then entered to a monthly and possibly yearly challenge on the way to win the price of 200 Steem in total. You can give @mrprofessor your support by upvoting this winner announcement post.
My next challenge is coming shortly: Asian Sunday. Get your pictures ready! :)
