Hi everyone!

The time goes by really fast and we will soon know another yearly winner of my 7 World´s Continents Photo Challenge.

The winning photo of the year 2017 by @justdentist

We already know all 12 monthly winners of the year 2018 and now we need to determine the winner. Originally, I thought it would be the monthly winner with the biggest value of upvotes on the respective winner announcement but because the price of Steem and therefore also the value of the upvotes were changing significantly throughout the year, it would not be fair.

To make the competition as fair as possible for all 12 contestants, I decided to proceed like this:

You will find all 12 monthly winners with their entries in the comments below. Each of them in a separate comment. You can vote for your favorite photo by upvoting the corresponding comment. The entry with the biggest total value (not number!) of upvotes will become the yearly winner and will be rewarded with 100 SBD! You can cast your votes for 7 days from now on.

To make the voting as simple and clear as possible, please do not post any other images in the comment section. Feel free to leave a comment and your upvote of the image that you want to become the yearly winner. It would also be great if you can re-steem the post for increased exposure. Thank you so much for your cooperation.

Feel free to check the entry conditions of the contest at the following post: 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge - 2018 guidelines – 25/10 update

Here are all 12 monthly winners of 2018. The choice is yours.

@axeman June 2018 winning entry:

Rich and stunning sunrise colors at Hurghada, Egypt. Morning low waters made visible very nice sand patterns and some stones around, which made the general composition much more interesting. Wide angle lens and low shooting point.

stunning photo @axeman, love the tones of the photo and the tranquility it portraits!

·

I hope it gets you there :)) cool photo and very warm :)

·
·

Hah, yeah.. good memories form warm vacations. Especially counting whats now outside the house.. some -10 :D

·

Nice picture. I feel professional in shooting.

·

Congrats man, I tried my best but your pic is just stunning.

·
·

Have to admit we had a tough competition here...
Btw, you are very welcome to join my weekly landscape contest as well :)

@mrprofessor August 2018 winning entry:

Mount Fitz Roy, El Chaltén - Argentina. Looking from this angle, the imponent Fitz Roy seems reachable. The most adventurous person may even attempt. However, the Paso Superior may hide dangerous crevasses to protect the old Fitz from climbers.

All of these 12 photos are amazing and I would like to congratulate to their authors, you all did a great job guys. However, my vote goes to this one by @mrprofessor. I believe you really deserve the win Arthur, especially after what you have been through in Europe lately... Good luck man!

·
·

You are just amazing @phortun, I'm absolutely grateful for having you among my friends and soon we'll be drinking a nice beet, laughing about all the crazy stories.

·
·
·

Hey Arthur, sorry to hear about your bike stolen in London! It's cool to see we actually won the monthly challenge with the same mountain in El Chaltén. Just upvoted your entry (as a competitor! ;p), and I'm not asking any friends to vote my mountain, since you need some funds more urgently. Good luck with your adventures! And I tagged you in my Cross-culture Challenge post - if you want, you can enter to win some possible awards. :)

That's one beautiful act from you @itchyfeetdonica, it emphasizes how strong the Steem community is. As soon as I go back to the flat I'll definately check the contest.

Thank you so so much for the support!

·
·
·
·
·

No worries. Glad if I could help a tiny bit!

·
·
·
·

Wow, that was so kind of you Donica!! You are an amazing girl :) Actually, Julian (September winner) did the same thing :) Arthur should be really grateful for "competitors" like this :)))

·
·
·
·
·

Thanks Petr! You guys are more amazing.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I am just trying to get some support for him, I didnt have to sacrifice my own potential win like you guys so no - you are more amazing :D ;) And actually, Tammy also acted like you and Julian ;)

·

·
·
·

I owe you guys a truck load of beers, when is the meetup? haahahaha

·
·
·

I am sure we will :) Take care buddy and good luck with this final! :)

·

Agreed with @phortun here; some great pics all-round but I particularly like this one and having met @mrprofessor in Krakow in November, I could think of a more well-deserved winner!

I just wished us humans would care more about the nature! Thanks for the support

This photo looks more like a painting ! Amazing !

·

Thank you Dougal, hearing that from an artist makes me even happier.

·

Good luck, this photo is amazing.

·
·

You are amazing.

·

A beautiful place to stay a few days and forget about the stressful world we are living. Please uninstall WhatsApp in a place like this. Just go with a camera and your soul! Beautiful photo! Regards

·
·

That's one of the best places in the world to 'get lost', loads of amazing trails that interconnect and the best of all, wifi doesn't even have signal there!

Thanks for the support @chbartist

@irvinesimages May 2018 winning entry:

Golden Moonrise. Its such a beautiful event to witness and even more amazing to photograph, for those who are clever enough to figure out the right place and the right time. And then be lucky enough to receive the right light. This is a photo of Cathedral Rock in Beautiful Sedona, Arizona USA.

I voted for this one as my topmost favorite ~ ❤️ ~ and I am not surprised at all to then find out that it belongs to one of my most favorite photographers @irvinesimages as well ~ 😄✨ ~

@itchyfeetdonica February 2018 winning entry:

After a few hours' hike from the village El Chaltén in Argentina, I reached this turquoise glacier lake in front of Mount Fitz Roy. It is an unforgettable experience trekking in this region with magnificent peaks and stunning waterways.

@josefinemk July 2018 winning 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 :-)

What a pleasure to be in this great company!! All the images of mother nature are totally stunning, but I would be really happy to see @mrprofessor win this contest so that he can get some extra funds to buy a new bike as he just got stolen his legendary bike in London while on his epic European bike trip. Fingers crossed Arthur!

·

Wow, this is what Steem is all about, what a support @littammy! I can not express in words how grateful and happy I'm while reading your comment!

Thank you so so much

@jpphotography September 2018 winning entry:

Uluru at Sunset. When I travelled in Australia, I had never planned on visiting the red centre, but since I found a ride share headed there, I joined in. I had no expectations, but seeing this huge rock was just incredible! The colours at sunset are simply stunning.

@narchuk January 2018 winning entry:

It happened in Thailand, in the Andaman Sea. At the very end of the dive I saw a sea turtle. She swam from coral to coral and did not notice my presence. Turtles are very calm, if you do not touch them. I swam next to her doing a frame-by-frame. At some point a flock of small fish swept past us. It lasted just a couple of seconds. I managed to make only one photo.

This is jaw dropping!

·

·

all the photos are incredible! talented photographers. good luck to all of them! but in my opinion, this one is the best. since it's a combination of good timing, good talent, nature, colours...fascinating.

·

I just fell in love with this picture.

excellent, good luck to the winners

@ansharphoto March 2018 winning entry:

Rovinj, Croatia. Visitors to Rovinj are often struck by its resemblance to Venice, its neighbor almost directly across the Adriatic Sea. The only thing that seems to distinguish “Little Venice” from its namesake is the absence of canals and busloads of tourists.

What a beautiful capture...!....

Congratulations to these great photographers for such wonderful photographs, Thank you for delighting us with these beautiful things that exist in every space on Planet Earth. Thanks to Tomas for such a wonderful project. Today my vote is for @itchyfeetdonica

@davidgermano April 2018 winning entry:

Just an example of the amazing place that is Covão d'Ametade, a eco-campsite located in the Serra da Estrela Natural Park (North-Central Portugal) and integrated in one of the largest glacial valleys in all Europe. This beautiful stream is just one of several scenarios that one can enjoy at that place!

@crazy-andy October 2018 winning entry:

For today’s African photo there is one of my favorite shots from that continent. I don’t know exactly why, but I simply like it. We can see cohesion of flora and fauna there. Big African elephant walking through the horde of impalas those graze in savannah.

@liltammy November 2018 winning entry:

This apocalyptic photo was taken on my favourite beach in Mexico - the Xpuha Beach aka heaven on Earth. It is a remote and beautiful beach with deep white powder sand, crystalline waters with rich marine life. Still relatively unknown, it is a tranquil beach with few people.

Thanks a lot!! Have a great upcoming weekend:)

@pedrocanella December 2018 winning entry:

Twilight seen from the terrace of my sister's building, in the Botafogo neighborhood, in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil. I believe this is one of the most fantastic cities in the world, due to the combination of forests, mountains, buildings and sea. That's where I was born.
