Unlike most travelers who reached Torres del Paine National Park by land transportation from Puerto Natales of Chile, I arrived there through Rio Serrano by a ship and a small boat, and after a short hike upon landing, I captured this amazing view:

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Australian Monday week #36 - winner announcement!

@jayclar30 Australian Monday entry:

This is Natural Bridge but is sometimes called Natural Arch. It is a stunning waterfall found in Springbrook National Park in Queensland, Australia. I was blessed the day we visited, we had been there for a little while and I had already taken a heap of photos but then the sun found an area through the trees to shine through making my photos all the better. The reflection from the sun on the water was reflecting up onto the roof of the cave highlighting it's fabulous textures and colours.

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Tuesday of Antarctica and World´s Oceans week #36 - winner announcement!

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

Next frame from "Endangered Species" series. Pretty long exposure shot of a beautiful sunset at the Baltic Sea coast, nearby the gates to the port of Klaipeda. Pretty stormy skies, but still with touch of colors from the dawning sun at the horizon. A long piece of wood as a perfect foreground leading the eye to the endless sea. Enjoy the scenery!

The afternoon sun strikes the Chyulu Hills in Tsavo West, Kenya. A land scape that is usually dry and grey has once again been transformed into lush green by the arrival of the rains.

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - European Thursday week #36 - winner announcement!

@martinphoto European Thursday entry:

A marvelous feat of engineering and a photographers delight. This is Puente Nuevo and its surrounding area. A majestic 200+-year-old structure with beautiful views on both sides from the top of the structure, begging to be photographed. A must see if you're in the area around Ronda, in Andalusia (Spain).

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - North American Friday week #36 - winner announcement!

@crazy-andy North American Friday entry:

On the photo below you can see one of many amazing USA State Parks. This one is located in Utah and I have visited it on my first trip to USA in 2014. There is a funny anecdote from this year’s Utah visit, when we also planned to visit it, but then we realized just few miles before the park, that we don’t have enough fuel and turn around. We came back to Moab’s gas station with fuel for only 4 miles left. So it was a smart decision at the end.

This isn't your photograph. This was taken in South Dakota on Nov. 19, 2016 by a photographer that goes by the user name PixelPieStudio. Just because you put your watermark on it does not make it yours. You can find a link to this photographers portfolio here:
