Today, you can participate by submitting your personal pictures from your travels to the continent of Antarctica. I am also adding World´s Oceans to the same challenge to allow more Steemians to compete in this contest.

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

Could be easily considered as some Antarctica landscape, but the truth is this is frozen coastline of the Baltic Sea, Lithuania after pretty long period of negative temperature. Very low shooting angle and very wide angle lens bringing quite unusual overall perspective for the scenery. Dying from the hot Europeans.. enjoy the COLD!

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Asian Sunday week #47 - winner announcement!

@vcclothing Asian Sunday entry:

I was exploring the caves in Petra Jordan were people used to live and I came across this one cave that had a window with a awesome view. I was there during winter so it was cold out side but surprisingly inside the caves was alot warmer. Petra is an amazing place to explore! So many cool caves to check out.

@vinceboisgard Australian Monday entry:

Burning sunset over the Beagle Gulf, as every night the landscape turns into an incredible scenery of thousand colours. Darwin is a magical place for sunset sighting and every day the end of the day is just mind-blowing... I loved it!

Breathtaking colorful sunset over the Caribbean Sea in the picturesque bay of Punta Esmeralda. Unknown to most tourists, the bay is located just outside of the famous city of Playa de Carmen on the popular Riviera Maya, Mexico.



Great show. I love the colors. My daughter is at the beach and saw some dolphins today.


What a great shot that is! Well done.

Photo of a Bowmouth guitarfish. I took it at Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta (USA). It is a large fish with approximately 3 meters long, and it has an unique appearance, the fins are similar to the sharks but its mouth is quite different, because it is flat and looks like an undulated line. It is related with the rays.


Wow, that is a magnificent creature!


Indeed! I am glad that you like it.

What a moment watching the sun set over a remote part of the Indian Ocean from the West Coast of Mauritius. I went for an afternoon run exploring the Mauritian coastline and was treated by this view!



This looks like such a nice relaxing spot to watch the sunset. Great shot.

This is such a cool shot. I love the wide angle on here. It makes the scale looks so big. Great job.


Once again an amazing entry. Thank you so much. Tomas

Beach in New Zealand

This beach on the coast of New Zealands North Island was located directly at the campground where I was staying at. At sunset, the pebbles in the foreground in combination with the rocky cliffs in the background were a fantastic motive.

1/200s; 18mm; f/7.1; ISO 100

I have also posted this photo on my blog.


That is truly stunning!

Summer will be soon gone, but I know the place where there is always summer 😄
Beautiful Seychelles… Islands offers great climate with temperature always from about 25 – 35 degrees Celsius. And for those who like warm water, this is a place to be as I guarantee that you can be in it whole day…

**Nordkapp-the end of the world **

Hi :), hope you have a wonderful day !.
So I took this photo when I was visiting Norway, and I thought that If I can put a photo for today contest it need to be this one (I'm new on steemit so this is my first contest in here :-) ). I don't have any photo from Antarctica (so it has to be an Ocean) , and Nordkapp is near Artic :D but is also cold place (in July was in here around 0 C :O) and it's also the end of the world - this is the edge - you can't go on by your feet, becasue in front of you is only the endless horizon of the north water....

Photo was taken by canon 40D , lens tamron 17-55 mm.


congratulations to your very first entry here ~ and with such lovely picture no less....!


Thank You for the nice welcome :) !


~ ✨✨ ~ I really like your title picture too...! And one certainly can never have enough of sunsets like I see them on your profile :))


ah.. Thank You very much ! well, it's a pity that steem cuts photo, but soon I will post this pic normally on my wall :).


Welcome to Steemit! Great to have you onboard and participating in my contest with such an amazing entry. I am wishing you the best of luck. Tomas


Thanks :-) It's really nice, that you want to organize contest like this, so I will try to do my best with my photos ! Have a nice day. Halina

Dahican Beach, Mindanao - Philippines

Because of Mindanao's reputation as a war zone, you won't see a lot of foreign tourists. Even some Filipinos from other islands don't dare visit Mindanao! In fact, most of Mindanao is quite safe and the lack of visitors means you'll often find yourself alone on some amazing beaches. This shot was taken at Dahican Beach, Mati Davao Oriental, on Mindanao.



Hmmmm, I want to get transferred there right now:)


Let me know if you ever want to go, I can show you how to get there :)

Wilsons Promontory NP- Victoria, Australia. The Sunset at squeaky beach over the endless range of the "Tasman Sea" From here it's about 200km to Tasmania. The entire area is beautiful. The ocean, beaches, nature... Breathtaking!



The sun looks so tiny:)


Thanks for the upvote ;)

Spending vacation time on the island of Aceh Singkil Some time ago. This is one of the calm beaches in the sea of Aceh, Indonesia. And the beauty of this beach is also covered by the amount of moss ... it's really beautiful when I take pictures on this beach.


Glad to see you back with this wonderful photo. Excellent job. Keep it up. Tomas

World's Oceans.
Bottlenose dolphins, beautiful inhabitants of our oceans. You can find them in warm water all over de world. They might be one of the smartest animals on earth.
We found this one in Monkey Mia, Australia Shark Bay Marine Park.

Today I want to share a beautiful shot at Parguito Beach (Isla de Margarita - Venezuela). Taking pictures of the sea, waves and rocks I found that beautiful bird and although I was flying very fast I was able to capture it. The photograph was taken from the famous hill of this beach, where many people climb to see the place from the heights and take pictures.


to the beauty of the Indonesian island of Aceh


it is such a wonderful image - if you could make the description about 30 - 50 words like it is requested in regards to this contest it would be perfect :)


Great call! Thank you.

Love of nature means love to yourself. These mountains, forests, crops, rivers and sea are always devoted to the welfare of the people. When we go to the sea, we get the reality, when we go to the mountain, we get the reality. This is the continuous shower of the mountain, that the uneven waves of the sea bring an inexpressible feeling to the human, this is the green tree of the forest, which creates a great natural beauty of birds.

This is truly a very beautiful sight @czechglobalhosts
