The Humboldt hotel is a jewel of the Venezuelan architecture of the 50’s. It is at the top of El Ávila a mountain of more than 2100 meters above sea level. For more than 30 years it has not been in used. From the engineering point of view it is very interesting, because the cylindric shape is supported in a central column. Its construction was a challenge due to its remote location.

I spotted this colony of sea lions in the Humboldt Penguin National Reserve in Chile. This reserve is located in the Pacific Ocean north of La Serena, the southern gate of the Atacama region. It's not easy to get a steady shot from the shaking boat as a result of the heavy wind at the sea, but I was very excited to see these fellows so close-by in the wild. :)

Surreal landscape in Bolivia

The landscape in Southern Bolivia is absolutely crazy: Within a few hundred kilometres, the worlds largest salt lake, snow-capped volcanoes, volcanic hot springs and surreal landscapes such as this one can be found.

I have also posted this photo on my blog.

In Colombia, the Nemocon salt mine is less known than the famous Zipaquira salt cathedral. However, you'll have a more intimate visit.
The photo shows a natural mirror made of salted water.



This photograph is of the Indian Cave in the Falcon State - Venezuela. Place surrounded by abundant vegetation and humidity, ideal for those people who like to be in contact with nature.


These moai on Easter Island, lay just next to the volcanic mountain that they were carved out of. There is so many of these statues that never made it to their desired place on the island. They either fell over while moving them or they broke in the move. Now over the years the sand has covered these Moai up to thier necks. It is such an amazing island to visit

This image is of the beach La Restinga on the island of Margarita in the Caribbean Sea, it is a beach of 22 km with shells of mollusks like sand and it is an almost virgin beach that can be enjoyed almost for you alone ... my wife loves to walk by it and collect marine objects, I almost have several boxes of them at home ...


At the end of the XVIIe century began the construction of the Jesuit Missions in Bolivia. They are located in the Chiquitos region, north of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Here is the first mission to be founded; Misión of San Francisco Xavier, in 1691.


Cityscape in Venezuela

This photograph is of the city of Puerto Cabello state Carabobo, where you can see some houses by the sea, hotels and some boats that are used for tourism. What most impresses me about this landscape is the shark fish coming out of the sea that stands out in the middle of the clouds.

Drone photo from Patagonia

drone photo - tdp.png

Here is a personal drone photo from Patagonia from the border of Argentina and Chile. Taken just before the big snows fall, still lots of brown grass from the summer but the shadows are growing and the views from above are always best! Enjoy!

Have a great weekend Tomas.

Keep doing what you are doing, you're doing an amazing job.

Always my pleasure to share your content on twitter.

Thanks again Tomas for all your support.

Altair Shipwreck - Southern Brazil

Hello, unfortunately your entry is short of 30 words and cannot be qualified for the contest. Thank you for your understanding. Tomas

Oh my God. I think I've made the same mistake twice. I'm so dumb! This time I should have learned

Here is my introduction post as you asked from me.

Machu Picchu in Peru
site of ancient Incaruins located about 50 miles (80 km) northwest of Cuzco, Peru, in the Cordillera de Vilcabamba of the Andes Mountains. It is perched above the Urubamba River valley in a narrow saddle between two sharp peaks. I have shared this photo on my blog

Hello! I have just visited your FB profile. I do find it very unlikely that you are submitting images from all around the world while your profile only has images from your home country Pakistan. It seems to me that those entries are plagiarized which is a big concern. From now on your are banned from any of my contests unless your prove me otherwise.

Thank you Tomas is a profound pride for me that you have considered my photo good enough for your incredible post, thank you very much.
