See the winner of the last week´s Tuesday of Antarctica and World´s Oceans @mata.lensa with the following entry:

The sea that surrounds the world has become an important role for all the living beings that exist on earth. Even the sea counted larger than the mainland. And below is the ocean located at the western tip of the island of Sumatra (Aceh). This area is also a silent witness to the Tsunami disaster in 2004 that destroyed Aceh and is now the best destination point in "Banda Aceh".

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Asian Sunday week #43 - winner announcement!

@rinawonderlands Asian Sunday entry:

This is my entry for today contest :) I just went here last week, and it's so beautiful. If you ever want to visit a rainbow mountain in Asia, you should check this one. This rainbow mountains are part of the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in China. Layers of different colored sandstone and minerals were pressed together over 24 million years and then buckled up by tectonic plates. It's similar like Vinicunca mountain, in Peru, both has different layers of sandstone colors.

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Australian Monday week #43 - winner announcement!

@josefinemk Australian Monday entry:

This picture is quite special to me. I took it when @kryptocek and I went for a little winter hike at Lake Marian in Southland, New Zealand. We lived and worked in Milford Sound for 4 months and for the longest time we wanted to do this hike - but never got to because we lost our car in an accident and it was 40 minutes drive away. So one day we hitch hiked after work, did the hike, and hitch hiked back (right before it got dark and cars would stop coming). It was so worth it. I mean, look at this view :-)

This photo is from my trip to Sayulita, Mexico in March for a friend's birthday. Sayulita is a small town about 30-45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. I took this as the sun was setting over the Pacific Ocean. I loved that rock in the middle of the ocean that was a very popular perching site for birds throughout the day.


I love the color of the sky. So beautiful.

Panoramic view of Marsalforno and the Mediterranean Sea in the background. Marsalforno is a village on the north coast of Gozo, the second largest island of the Maltese archipelago. Located between the hill-top towns of Xaghra and Zebbug, Marsalforno is one of the most popular tourist resorts on the island.



What a beautiful shades of blue with contrast between the ocean and the sky. Great job.

Darwin is now covered with clouds, the tide is getting high and the trees will soon almost disappear under the water. Despite the hazy weather, the sun found its way through the clouds to create this fantastic northern Australian scenery.

I miss it!

What an epic picture!

Beach in Recife, Brazil

This beach in Recife surrounded by skyscrapers is a popular hangout for Brazilians who love to swim in the pleasant waters of the Atlantic Ocean and to play soccer on the beach.

I have also posted this photo on my blog.


Thank you so much for your entry. Kindly stay tuned for the winner announcement coming later on today.

This is a sunrise photo from Komodo area in Indonesia. I was there almost a year ago, but I am still having live scene from that place and that moment in front of my eyes. It was so beautiful morning, so calm and peaceful; the sun was so far but so close. It is hard to explain, as you have to experience it…

Simply stunning!

Let the journey begin

Many sailors started their journey into the Baltic sea from this port - Flensburg. Right at the German border to Denmark, the city is not only famous for its beer but also their shipyards. When you pass the "Förde" (fjord) you reach the open sea.

What a beautiful view! Stunning.

Les éponges sont des acteurs sous-marin indispensables et à la fois d'une discrétion remarquable. Personne ne les remarque, personne n'en parle, et pourtant sans eux la qualité de nos eaux seraint totalement différente. Des filtreurs infatigables, l'image parfait pour symboliser nos océans.The sponges are indispensable underwater actors and at the same time of a remarkable discretion. Nobody notices them, nobody talks about them, and yet without them the quality of our waters will be totally different. Tireless filterers, the perfect image to symbolize our oceans.

Sometimes it is better to go un-noticed:)....


Yes !! Good remark !

Strange thing, but for a few years of shooting sunset around Klaipeda I never was at southern part of the gates to port. Mainly the reason is that you need to cross the gulf first by ferry and then go by bicycle around 6-7 km to the gates. Not so big distance, yes, but other places of sea coast just more conveniently reachable just by car

Anyhow, finally few days ago when I was almost sure that a stunning sunset should be expected, took a bicycle and reached the destination in time :)

Few shot here and there just to get some notes and shooting positions for possible next comings. Gates to the port with dawning sun, some stone structures around, cool red boat at the beach and finally my bike on a colorful sunset. Quite nice, colorful and relaxing story, if not to know that was actually running like in hell trying to make shots from different positions when sky was still colourful, which obviously lasts not so long time... :)

Enjoy the story

Wow, magnificent image!

Go plastic free and help save a turtle! This month it's plastic free July and we find that it's easier for people to go plastic free when they think about the species that are most impacted by single use plastics.


Yep, some of the places on earth are covered in garbage and drowning in plastic. What a shame.

Alam menyediakan semua yang dibutuhkan manusia untuk hidup namun manusia enggan untuk menjaganya.

Alam memberikan semua yang dia punya namun manusia malah merusak nya.

Alam memperlihatkan semua keindahan nya namun manusia mencemari nya.

Allah memberikan kita manusia semua keindahan, kemudahan, dan kenikmatan dunia berupa lautan yang luas dengan sejuta keindahan ekosistem bawah laut yang sangat mempesona. Namun itu semua hanya cerita lama. Kini laut laut ku tercemar oleh tangan jahat umat manusia.



Thank you so much for your contribution. Stay tuned for the winner announcement. Have a great day. Tomas


Thanks a lot friends.

I took this photo of whales near the mouth of St. Lawrence river (Canada). During summer it is a popular place to do whale watching. The tourists take the zodiac boats (they can be seen in the image) and they approach to the whales to a prudential distance.

Sunset on the island Pico at the Azores. A colorful spectacle when the two elements water and fire are kissing each other at the horizon.

The Antarctic is an oceanic extension whose existence as an ocean is disputed. It surrounds the Antarctic and is, along with the Arctic, one of the only ones to surround the planet Earth completely. The oceans are a gift of nature.


Worlds' oceans. The great white shark, one of the ocean's deadliest predators. On average, they grow to around 4.6m long. We found this one during our shark cage diving trip in Australia. A very impressive animal. I was happy to see him but I was glad, I was in the cage.


You shot this photo?


Yes. We like to scuba dive as well so we have 2 underwatercameras and a go pro.


I just read your blogs. Very nice. Gonna follow you.


Thank you. Meet a white shark underwater is exceptionnal !! Where it was?


Port lincoln Australia. This was a daytrip for every one, even unexperienced divers. Just a regulator in your mouth and standing in the cage.They also have a live aboard for divers. Next time we will do that. Better cages and longer bottom time. The visability was great. We also made this trip in South Africa. There you had to hold your breath as long a possible and the visability was bad. So go Australia


the charm of the beauty of the ocean that is in aceh indonesia, never seems to be bored we discussed. the world's oceans. the sea provides abundant results. provides a beautiful view. every afternoon we will always miss being on the beach. enjoying the beautiful sunset

I want to show you something really lovely that happens on this beach. The strong waves of the beach "La Caracola" (Venezuela) break in these famous rocks, many people take pictures of this event and others just sit and watch and listen to this incredible sound. It is really fascinating!

Beautiful photo! I really liked it.
