20 Spectacular Photos From Around The World: XV

Glacier new zealand west coast scaled

And so we roll around to version 15 of this post, where I highlight some of my most popular pictures I’ve shared on my Facebook Page from the last month or two. I’ve renamed the series to mark the fifteenth edition, but other than a prettier label, the filling remains the same.

Since the last round up we’ve had the pleasure of visiting Poznan, Dubai and Paris, and of course continued to share various images from our other travels. I’d add something brilliantly witty here, but having now done fifteen introductions to this post, I think you’re probably happier just getting on with the eye candy. Am I right?

One last thing: this post is best viewed in as large a browser window as possible, using Chrome, Firefox, or a mobile browser. Just not IE. I can’t figure that browser out I’m afraid. You can also click on any image for a nice big gallery version of the post.

Light over the lakes scaled

Light over the lake district in the UK. This was taken a few years back with a little point and shoot, before I lugged quite so much photography gear around…

Church sunset costa brava sky clouds coast scaled

Clouds over Costa Brava, as the sun started to sink.

Graslei region Ghent waterways reflections scaled

The town of Ghent in Belgium. Well worth a visit!

walkers at sunset tempelhof2 scaled

Sunset over Tempelhof airport in Berlin. I publish a sunset photo every Sunday on the Facebook Page – can’t beat a good sunset!

Waterfall1 - scaled

Fitzroy Falls in New South Wales, Australia. 90 metres of straight down tumble!

Three sisters - scaled

Another one from Australia – the Three Sisters in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, just a couple of hours drive from Sydney.

Sunset

Another sunset, this one over Tasmania, Australia

Wat Ratchaburana Prang Ayutthaya Thailand doorway large 2

I love doorways, even when they are a bit crumbly. Or especially when they are a bit crumbly. This is from the city of Ayutthaya in Thailand.

The Taranaki Falls. I couldn't find a hidden cave behind them

The Taranaki Falls in New Zealand, part of the Tongariro National Park. A nice easy three hour hike if you are in the area.

night into day scaled

A couple from Dubai now. This above panoramic was put together from around 30 shots across three hours, and was about the most difficult edit I’ve ever done.

burj dubai fountains scaled

And this is the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest man made structure (830m). At time of writing, anyway.

monk thailand wat arun scaled

Wat Arun in Bangkok. You can climb to the top of this via some dizzyingly steep stairs, or just stand at the bottom and enjoy the view.

View from train Molise mist

Rolling through the Italian region of Molise by train in Autumn. Not a terrible way to pass a day.

Love locks vine bridge poznan cathedral island PPS

One from Poznan in Poland, where the love lock craze hasn’t as yet swamped this bridge to the Cathedral Island – where the nation of Poland itself is believed to have begun.

Long tail boat Khao Sok lakehouse

Khao Sok is a gorgeous national park in Thailand, where you get to live on little lake houses and relax away from the world.

Purnululu bungle bungle rock formation

These rock formations are found in the Purnululu National Park in Western Australia. It’s somewhat out of the way, and requires either a four wheel drive or a flying vessel of some description to reach them, but they are much worth the effort. Find out more about them here.

Notre Dame from behind

Paris. I had the pleasure of visiting to lead a photography workshop here in early 2014, which is when this shot is from. More from that visit, here.

Mount Taranaki trail

Mount Taranaki, in New Zealand’s north island, was my favourite of the day hikes I did in New Zealand. It’s a tough walk, but the views are worth it!

waterfall khao yai national park thailand

Finally, a waterfall in Khao Yai National Park in Thailand – the only place in Thailand we got to see Asian elephants in the wild.

And that’s it! As always, thanks for reading, and if you enjoyed the pictures from this month’s issue, do feel free to share this post far and wide with the buttons below! If you missed any of this series, you can catch up here.
