‘The Maldives is nearly anything you have dreamed of – blinding white sand and h2o with extra tones than a Pantone assortment. For an extra astounding see of the whitest sand, the bluest blues, amazing corals and vibrant fish, think about a clear canoe out for a paddle… you will not want to give it back again once more.’ – Evie & Emmie, @mumpacktravel.
Why we like it: The symmetry in this composition provides us h2o and sky for situations. All of the blue colors are so soothing, inviting and tranquil.
‘On a highway journey to Shirakawa-go we did a swift halt in Matsumoto to see one of the pair of castles in Japan viewed as a countrywide treasure: Crow Castle (aka Matsumoto Castle).’ – In no way Quit Travelling, @awoisoak.

The mild-weight illuminating the castle is comfortable ample that we by no means get damaging shadows under the roof levels but we still get marvelous texture in these roof tiles. Also – the crane standing under the bridge is framed flawlessly and a genuine consider care of for these who spend time studying the intricacies of the photograph.
‘I was on a camping tour of the Namib desert, and this was the place I was most seeking ahead to observing. Corpses of dead trees in a wide desiccated white clay pan, surrounded by some of the tallest sand dunes in the earth climbing up about a 1000 feet… It was simply otherworldly and pointless to say my jaw was commonly on the flooring.
I asked for our manual to drop me off ideal listed here as early as attainable in the early morning so I could think about to seize this place in the golden various hours when the dunes would would look in prosperous hues as the sunshine rose.’ – Len Theivendra, @lentheivendra.
Why we like it: The big blocks of coloration in the sky, the dunes and the sand mixed with the utter simplicity of the barren landscape. Each and every solitary tree has its quite unique unique sort and wide range. Even even while there is no vegetation and the trees are all dead, this non-regular landscape can nonetheless manage its unique for amazing magnificence.

‘Katong is a small bit farther from all the spots travellers ordinarily fork out a pay a visit to to in Singapore. It took one stroll by suggests of the definitely vibrant streets for me to grow fond of it. There is so a wonderful offer to examine in that area – Peranakan qualifications, compact neighborhood cafes, some of the most desirable streets and one famous laksa retail outlet. Incorporate Katong to your vacation record!’ – Aga Kozmic, @aga_amatteroftaste.
Why we like it: Color and repitition with one shock. The framing of the girl on the street with the vibrant umbrella provides a situation of drive to crack up the repetition and insert even extra temperament to the photograph.
