Water - Quick Тravel Photo Contest, Edition #69


Welcome to Quick Тravel Photo Contest #69

The theme today is "Water" ;)

The theme is just for your inspiration and motivation. Of course, I will consider any photo uploaded for the contest however images matching the daily theme will have greater chance to succeed ;) Good luck!


Let's have fun, share our visual memories from our travels, enrich the STEEM community and earn along the way!

What is Travel Photography? It is that type of the Eight Art where we capture culture, people, landscapes, objects, cityscapes, customs, traditions, events, history, etc. and we express our feeling of the time and the place we visited. We all love it, right? ;)

Thanks @travelcontest, and here is a H2O entry, The Fiume Brenta in Italy.
This time I didn't have to climb my bus, as I was shooting from a very tall bridge...

How I wish to be back here once again. The real clean spring water given by nature.

Congratulations to all the winners! All the photos are simply awesome. I'm merely a photography enthusiast who loves to take photos. Here's a shot from a visit to a farm in Bulacan with some friends. That definitely looks like a great place to relax and have a picnic. ^_^



It really looks like a place to relax... Thanks!


non-drinking water ;-)


Still, full of life, isn't it? Thank you

True! Thanks for your colorful entry!

Thank you so much for selecting my photo as one of the winners! Congrats to the other two winners - @vcclothing and @captainklaus! 🙂👍

More stuff from my recent travel on holidays to Hervás... this time we made an excursion to Granadilla (<a href"https://es.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granadilla_(C%C3%A1ceres)">More info in Spanish) an abandoned village due to an artificial lake they made on the area that was supposed to flood it. That never happened and now they are recovering the fortified village for tourism. The place has an special atmosphere and magic, appealing visit to the place (40.2682192, -6.1064700)
I love the @googlyeyes project and can’t resist to include some eyes on things... this is “Clamsy” a cute clam I invented that has its own adventures I’m posting there. This shot wasn’t yet posted but will on coming adventures...

The rain season has arrived, thank you!

Nice sunset in Porto, Portugal. It is always nice to walk near water at night just before supper, it is even better when you have a nice view like this. The city is known for its Porto obviously, but it is also a nice place for foodies and backpackers to enjoy.



Beautiful, thanks so much!

Since you are talking about water this is my favorite one!

It is from a place called Fonisa or Neraida Waterfalls. I found it hidden in the west part of the island of Kythira, in Greece.

The Smile

Pretty stunning and colorful sunset at Ajman, United Arab Emirates. One of the days when we were not traveling out somewhere, but just stayed in a hotel and passed half a day on the beach not far from...
And generally was quite unusual to see so many clouds still, but good to make some shots.. and smile :)

Enjoy it!
