Hello fellow Steemians,
I am very excited to announce the 97th weekly winner of my 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge that you have voted for over the past couple of weeks. The winner was based on your votes on daily winners announcements from each and every World Continent for that respective week.
Please give a huge shout out to the winning submission of the 97th week from @mrprofessor and his entry below:
The Julian alps - Slovenia. During these years of adventure on this world of ours, I've been through many challenges; cycling the Julian alps during the winter was one of the toughest. High elevations, freezing temperatures and just a tent as shelter, those days can me remembered in pictures, but the feeling of being out there will never be translatable in any form.
His amazing picture received total upvotes from you in the amount of $4.72! Apart from my upvotes on one of his posts, I am sending 20 SBD to @mrprofessor as the price for winning the weekly round.
From here, his stunning picture from Slovenia automatically enters the second round where it will compete against the previous and upcoming winners from the month of July for the price of 40 SBD. You can help @mrprofessor to be the winner of the monthly round by upvoting this post in order not to only win 40 SBD but to also enter into the yearly challenge to compete against other winners of the upcoming monthly challenges to receive another 100 SBD for winning the whole competition.
Please see the previous weekly winners from the month of July below:
@dmytrokorol and his week 93 winning entry:
Beautiful morning on Playa el Bollulo, Tenerife, Canary Islands. This beach with pitch black volcanic sand is one of the most beautiful on the island. I was mesmerized with the contrast of sand and the water rolling back and creating the white foamy lines. I have spent some time just looking at this natural beauty and noticed the amazing subtle reflection in the middle ground. All I needed is a subject and it was easy to find because there are several rock formations on the beach. I took several shots to find the right balance in all this permanent changing and combined several images (foreground with the leading lines, middle ground with reflection and subject with rock and crashing waves).
@jpphotography and his week 94 winning entry:
"Lost City" in Litchfield NP. These rock formations in Litchfield National Park in Australia's Northern Territory are known as "lost city" and while these rocks are all natural, if you look at them closely, you can actually recognise the pillars of an ancient city!
@jpphotography and his week 95 winning entry:
Sigiriya, Sri Lanka. Sigiriya is one of the few places in Sri Lanka that are overcrowded with tourists, despite the hefty entrance fee. I went early in the morning and had about two hours to climb the rock and enjoy the stunning view from the top of the rock with relatively few people around. On the way down, I passed by hundreds of tourists.
@phortun and his week 96 winning entry:
View of an empty white sand beach and the Caribbean Sea on Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Located just some 13 km (8 mi) off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Isla Mujeres is a little tropical island that is home to approximately 13,000 people.
