Black’s Epic Adventures Photo Contest: Entry #2
Since entries are unlimited on this contest, it doesn’t hurt to increase our chances of winning, with more photos. 😉
Details about the contest can be found on the original post: HERE
For this round, I’ve selected a few images for each category. I still had trouble with the FAST category, but I gave it my best shot.
Every time I visit Albania, I feel like I’ve transported myself into some kind of European Wild West. After a 3 hour terrifying, guardrail free drive, we reached the top of Llogara and discovered a restaurant that seemed to be straight out of the Middle Ages. My barbecue goat was so fresh, I’m convinced they must’ve gone into the yard to slaughter my lunch.
Take a drive along the Colombian Caribbean coast and you’ll find a huge number of wild, untouched beaches, with nary a footprint on them. I wonder who planted those flags? And more importantly, when?
Is it wrong to use an actual panorama for the Panoramic category? 😉
On a camel safari in India’s Thar Desert, we passed by these women, hard at work, collecting branches and sticks for cooking. I love the contrast of their colourful saris against the monotone beiges of the desert.
It was so difficult to find photos for the FAST category, that I resorted to using a photo with me in it. 😉 Searching for Proboscis Monkeys (yes, because they have gigantic noses), in a long tail boat, was a refreshing antidote for Brunei’s stifling heat and humidity.
We drove from Fort Kochi to the tea plantations of Munnar on a classic Royal Enfield motorcycle, but of course I don’t have pictures of that. I was too busy holding on for dear life and praying we’d survive the Indian traffic!
Sir Lanka’s ancient palace, Sigiriya, is one of the most epic sites I’ve seen in all my travels. Two hundreds metres high, the “Lion Rock,” used to have not only paws, but also a sculpted lion’s head, which unfortunately collapsed many years ago.
In Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, it’s possible to see the EPIC site of a still active volcano. The Halema’uma’u Crater is nearly 3,000 feet in diameter and a plume of sulfur dioxide smoke is often visible. We had to stand well back, due to an underground lava lake and the possibility of occasional eruptions!
So, there you have it. What do you think of our selections? Which photo is your favourite?
