Time to share another series of some of our most popular photos as shared on the site’s Facebook Page! We love sharing these images from our travels – and almost 300,000 folks are following along now, which is pretty awesome.
Since the last update, we’ve travelled to Dubai, Milan, Finland and Spain, so naturally photos from those locations have been featuring, as well as other shots from our travels.
Let’s get going with Edition 16 – if you like these, don’t miss the previous editions! Also, you can click any photo in this post to be rewarded with a slide show of all of them, if reading text is just too much work.
Thailand to start with – here bats emerge at dusk from caves near the Khao Yai National Park. I’ve never seen anything quite like it – there are millions of them, and they form spectacular ribbons in the air as they come out to hunt.
The ceiling of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is mind blowingly spectacular. It’s the pinnacle of Gaudi’s creative genius in this city, and if you only visit one of his works, then make it this one.
A quick detour to the white city of Ostuni in the Puglia region of Italy. Italy is one of my favourite countries in Europe, and I’m hoping to spend more time here in the coming months!
Kicker Rock off San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos was home to the best snorkelling we’ve ever done. If you want to visit these amazing islands, I’ve put together a couple of resources for you, one to help you plan your overall trip, the other focusing on visiting San Cristobal Island as an independent traveller. Enjoy.
Also in Ecuador, this is a shot from the Devil’s Nose Train Ride on the mainland – one of the world’s most spectacular train ride. Heck of a view, I think you will agree.
Earlier on in 2014 I led a photowalk around Berlin. This is from that day, which was a lot of fun.
We were back in Girona ever so briefly this summer! I love the colourful houses by the river, and tried to get a slightly different shot to those I captured last time round.
We are based in France, although you might not know it given how little time we seem to spend exploring around us! We tried to change that recently, with a trip to the Dune de Pilat – the largest sand dune in Europe!
Another one from France, where the skies are remarkably clear it has to be said. If you’re interested in astrophotography and learning how to take shots like this, don’t miss our newsletter where I share secrets of capturing shots like this.
New Zealand is reliably beautiful, pretty much wherever you go. This is Mangawhero Falls, on the North Island, part of the Tongariro National Park.
We recently re-visited the town of Besalu in Spain. The first time round, I was only there long enough to grab some shots of the bridge like this one. This time though, we had more time, and have shared our tips for what to do in Besalu.
The town of Freiburg in south-western Germany is said to be the sunniest place in the country. I can’t comment on that, but it was certainly very pretty.
Kakadu national park is a must-visit if you’re in Australia’s Northern Territory. These are the Twin Falls in the dry season – imagine what they’d be like in the wet!
This is the a beach in Ireland, at the start of the stunning Dingle pensinula coastal drive. At least, I am reliably informed it’s spectacular. When we visited, it rained so much we could barely see anything. Still, it made for some moody shots…
At the end of 2013 we spent a few days in Rio. This is a shot of downtown, with the Christ the Redeemer statue on the mountain in the background.
I promised you a shot from Finland! This is a lake in Nuuksio National Park, just a short drive from the city of Helsinki. You can read more of my experiences in Finland here.
And we spent time exploring the countryside around Girona in the Catalan countryside.
Another one of those waterfall shots, this time in the Pyrenees foothills of Spain. I’ve been asked a few times how I achieve that fluffy water effect – all I can say is sign up to our newsletter to learn our photography secrets!
And we’ll finish this edition on a sunset, this one take over the lake of St. Estephe in the Dordogne region of France. And that’s it for this round-up post. Until the next time…
