The Expeditioner’s August Travel Photo Contest Winner: Rural India

Thursday, September 1, 2011

For the August photography contest over at our Flickr group, we sought out shots of what you defined as rural life. The submissions we receive every month never fail to amaze. More impressive than their locale is the spot on rural-ness of each shot. This month’s entrants were from all over the globe: Namibia, Vietnam, […]

“Inspiring Vistas” Photo Contest Winner: Classic Western North America

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

“Inspiring Vistas” really couldn’t be a more loaded theme for our summer photography contest, and the submissions were truly everything you would imagine. More than an Indonesian volcano, a view of  Hawaii from the air, or the longing of young cowboys at a rodeo, it is the colors of Canada’s Kananaskis country that inspire us […]

The Most Frightening Image From The Phoenix Sandstorm [Image]

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Nothing helps beat the oppressive desert heat in Phoenix this time of summer than a good ‘ol fashioned apocalyptic sandstorm. According to The Washington Post, the sandstorm is actually a haboob, “caused by the downdrafts of a collapsing thunderstorm complex generated by the Southwest monsoon . . . When the downdrafts – made up of […]

Monday, July 4, 2011

Legs Would Only Get in the Way: A Q&A With Author, Photographer and Traveler Kevin Michael Connolly In this age we live in, seeing a legless man sitting on a bar stool would likely lead to a conversation surrounding Iraq or Afghanistan.

Budget Travel recently put in a request to Cornell University (are esteemed academic institutions usually at the beck and call of travel magazines?) to analzye Flickr’s more than 35 million photographs to figure out where the most photographed places on Earth are, and this was their results, ranked by city and most photographed landmark: 1) […]

The Expeditioner’s May Travel Photo Contest Winner: Hanoi Eatery

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Dear Hanoi, you can have your cacophony of unrelenting horns. Me? I’ll revel in the bliss that is your cuisine. This month’s photo contest winner, Jonathan Hall, did just that. In his own words: Hanoi’s dining scene can be daunting at first as there are rarely any menus. You just walk along until you see […]

April’s Photography Contest Winner: Finding Uniqueness On London’s Tower Bridge

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

This month’s inspiration comes from Jason Rodman and his incredible photo sense. Some people just “get it.” Here’s what I mean: You walk into your 400th Korean temple and take the quintessential photograph of the gate so grandma can scrapbook it once you return home. But, for some reason, that’s just not good enough . […]

Images Of Barcelona

Monday, May 2, 2011

Barcelona is probably better suited than most cities in the world to be described in images rather than words. Save for some technology that could transport the smells of an early-morning market or send the rays of warmth one experiences sipping sangria in a sunny plaza in the late afternoon, the iconic images of Gaudí […]

When you haven’t got any trips on the horizon and you’re reading posts about recent trips to, say, Barcelona, you’ll seek out any means of escapism. Recently, I learned of a new show on The Weather Channel called From the Edge With Peter Lik about the acclaimed Australian photographer who documents his travels to shoot […]

Photo Essay: Vieques, The Puerto Rican Island You’ve Never Heard Of

Monday, April 4, 2011

Vieques, sweet, Vieques — the last natural gem in the Caribbean. Part of the Puerto Rican Commonwealth, this peaceful little island remained untouched by mega-resorts commonly found in neighboring destinations thanks to not so peaceful forces: bombs. That’s right, during World War II, the U.S. Federal Government took over approximately 26,000 acres out of a […]
