The winner is... (drum roll)...
The Valley of Longevity, by Tom and Jenny from Till The Money Runs Out !!!
"Vilcabamba, Ecuador is one of our favorite places for hiking in the world. Vilcabamba is sometimes called "the valley of longevity" and with beautiful hikes like this one criss-crossing the area it's easy to see why it's inhabitants have earned a reputation for living longer, healthier lives than almost anywhere else!"
Looks like our style of hiking, that's for sure. I think we would love Ecuador! I like the way the photo shows the perspective of how steep the side embankment is and how close to that edge the hiker is.
So although we have a winner, we also want to make special mention of a couple of runners up. The photo of Dune 45 in Nambia we really liked, and perhaps especially because we've been there...and the place looks exactly like it does in the photo. A really neat place. This photo may have won, but I (Kevin) feel myself distracted whenever someone puts a watermark of their "copywrite" on the photo. I find that it totally takes away from the impact of the photo. Just my personal opinion, but I don't like them.
Very cool photo by Daniel at globe-trekking.com, and a very cool place. But I don't like the watermark.
And, On Top of the World by Claire at ZigZag on Earth . I love the way the photo shows the almost perfect 45 degree slope that this guy is climbing...and with the mountains in the distance this fellow really does look on top of the world!
So, that was fun. Be sure to keep your eye on http://tillthemoneyrunsout.com/ because they'll be hosting the next edition of Travel Photo Roulette!
