Black and white photo of business in a shop in Lisbon

THIRD PLACE:

Beijinho — Lisbon

"This was taken in a small bar in the Barrio Alto district of Lisbon. The bar is called Vou de Camões, after the famous Portuguese poet. I stopped in for a drink after riding into the city and was lucky enough to get this shot. Lisbon is a very romantic city, this shot captures that."

Man walking down the streets of Yemen

SECOND PLACE:

Yemen Footsteps — Yemen

This is a picture of a gentleman disappearing into the labyrinth of the ancient city of Sana'a, Yemen. I left my hotel and decidedv to follow him, and in no time at all I was magnificently lost. I hope that he, and that magnificent city and its wonderful inhabitants, survive.

Landscapes and Natural World

Photo of a family portrait in a deep cave in Bosnia & Herzegovina

THIRD PLACE:

Drvece — Bosnia & Herzegovina

"My father took my cousins and I to a very large nature reservation with hiking trails, lots of trees, and huge caves. It was so nice to see my country in this peaceful state. Walking through the city shows many scars from the war so it was quite literally a breath of fresh air to see this view."

Photo of mountains in Austria

SECOND PLACE:

On Top of the World — Austria

"While traveling through Austria, I had the opportunity to take a cable car up Untersberg, a massif of the Berchtesgaden Alps which borders Germany and Austria. By hiking farther up the mountain, I reached this astonishing view; the distant mountains radiated a pronounced blue shade, which left for a breathtaking view. Being able to be in a place where civilization is miles below, and only sharing the view with the mountain peaks and clouds around, truly reciprocates the beauty of the world we live in."

Lake Hauroko in New Zealand

FIRST PLACE:

Flooded Dock — New Zealand

"Lake Hauroko, the deepest lake in New Zealand, lies in the Fiordland National Park and the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage site. This area typically receives over 20 FEET of rain per year and as such, this boat dock had three levels, with the bottom two typically flooded many times of year."

THIRD PLACE:

 

Look as Far As You Can See - France

"I was on my last few hours in Paris and I climbed to the top of the Arc de Triumph and I did not have money for the telescope, but I though it would look cool if I could but the telescope in with the Eiffel tower in the background."

by Courtney Fuller

SECOND PLACE:

Reflection — Slovakia

"While exploring the city of Bratislava, the capitol of Slovakia, I came across this beautiful church which was situated near a busy road. Between the building and the passing cars, panes of glass were situated; this picture depicts the reflection of the church from a shattered glass-pane. I constantly try to find new and exciting angles for my photography, and between the sunlight, broken glass, and the situation of the church, I was able to capture this unique photo."

FIRST PLACE:

 
Life in the Crossroads — Vietnam

"In wandering the streets of Hanoi - an endless maze of street cuisine and busy lifeways - I found myself at a crossing, and only accidentally turned my head to the side. I wasn't expecting this scene - a lively glimpse into a still bursting neighborhood whose central artery had been converted into train tracks. I stood here for several moments and marveled at the miraculous way in which humans interact with these concrete and endearing infrastructures, while still managing to maintain the generative relationships that enable their lives to flourish in the face of 'progress'."

Horse in Wicklow County in Ireland

PEOPLE AND CULTURE:

My First Irish Friend — Ireland

"My first tour in Ireland was to Wicklow County and one part of the tour was horseback riding. I was able to ride through the green hills of Ireland and meet this fine fella at the barn. He was also very interested in what I was doing as well."

Overlooking Barcelona

ARCHITECTURE:

Buttcelona — Spain

"When I first arrived at the National Museum in Barcelona I was disappointed that the Font Magica was not running. However, when I made it to the top of the hill that the museum is situated on, I was struck by the view of the entire city framed by the mountains topped with Tibidabo Catedral del Sagrat Cor. To me, this image not only represents Barcelona, but also all it has to offer. If you take the time to appreciate the city, you'll never be disappointed."
