Hello fellow Steemians,
you have a few more days to vote for the 101st weekly winner of my 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge who will be announced on Monday. The winner is voted by you based on the upvotes from the individual continents winner announcements. The winner of the weekly round receives 20 SBD from me and then enters into a monthly and possibly yearly challenge to compete for 200 SBD in total.
I have given out hundreds of SBD to the weekly and monthly winners and thousands of dollars worth of upvotes to winning participants. Now you have a chance to determine who will be the winner of the 101st weekly round by upvoting the below winner announcements over the next few days. The competition is heating up and I am getting excited to see which image will be the winning one. The choice is yours! :)

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.

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.
@mrprofessor South American Saturday 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.
