Musée d’Orsay - Paris, France

We pick this amazing shot by Karen Andjelic as our pic of the week. What an amazing viewpoint looking out over Paris from behind the famous clock face on the fifth floor of the Musée d’Orsay. What a stupendous shot, perfect exposure, and composition. Great location and photo Karen!

Abandoned School House - Cape Breton, Canada

Michel found these two abandoned beauties just off of the Ceilidh Trail in Cape Breton. Not often you come across a beautiful pair of abandoned structures like these!  One building is an old school house and the other may have been the teacher’s house.

Port Hueneme Pier - California, USA

Doug Golupski is a master of waterfront beach shots and his submission this week is not a disappointment. We love the deep orange tones of this image of Port Hueneme Pier. It is a 1200 foot long wooden plank pier on the waterfront in Port Hueneme. The Pier is open to the public and located next to a favorite beach, Port Hueneme Beach Park. At sunset, the pier is a great place to be as the sun sets behind the Channel Islands.

A former parish church from the early 13th century, this ruin is a medieval church on a religious site founded c.560-90 and dedicated to St. Moluag.

Well, it’s been just under five months since we launched our little photography app. This week we celebrated the 1000th location uploaded by our wonderful community members. When Lisette and I started on this journey, we never imagined we’d have such an active photography community. Even more impressive has been the high quality of submissions. We are so fortunate to have talented photographers like you contributing to the app. We are overwhelmed by your support so far, and can’t wait to see where your images and feedback take us in the future. Thank you again, so much!

Brochel Castle, Raasay Island

Scott Goldsworthy explores more castle ruins this week. Brochel Castle sits on Raasay Island’s northeastern shore.

Apologies for the delay in the update we had scheduled for last week, there were some issues in the test version, and we’ve sent it back to the developers to rework and retool. Hopefully, we’ll have it out for you this week. We’re off to Kingston today to go shooting, so until next time, keep taking great shots of great spots!

Some amazing photographic viewpoints this week. We received more location submissions than ever, and just like last week, we wish we could feature every one. The development team also has also been hard at work improving the app. We have a new update coming, and it should be out sometime this week. This update will make it easier to give our contributing users exposure and share their fantastic work on our platforms. But enough about all that, let’s look at some pretty pictures!

Montreal, Canada

New user Michel Bricteux submitted a large number of locations this week, and it was hard to narrow it down to which ones should feature. We love this great shot of the fireworks in Montreal and think you’ll agree this is a spectacular shooting location for getting shots of Jacques-Cartier bridge.

Lavender Fields of Spain

Another one from Michel Bricteux, and how can you go wrong with fields of Lavender? Vibrant purple hues in staggered rows make this an enticing viewpoint. This region has an annual festival making it an excellent area for shooting the fragrant and colourful plant.

Okay, we couldn’t resist just one more. Another one from Hege Benedicte. We love her shot of Tyin with the Filefjell mountain range in the background. It is hard to believe this beautiful viewpoint is a simple stop along the side of the E16. Roadtrip anyone?
