⚠️ PIXEO Photo Challenge Update ⚠️

  • We can’t pick anymore. After 11 new users and our regulars submitted stunning photographs this week it became apparent we were out of our depth. So, we’re changing things up. We’ll continue to seperate the chaff from the grain, but the winner will be decided by you!
  • We’ve added a new online voting page on our website and we’ll add the best submissions throughout the month.Then on the first of the next month we’ll open the voting for one week.
  • We’ll announce when we open the voting and you take it from there. Vote for your own photo or other PIXEO community members and spread the word. Don’t forget to get your friends and family voting and the picture with the most votes will win.
  • As always, we can’t enter, or our close friends and family. But we will vote too!
  • As before, the winner takes home a $50 USD Amazon Gift Card and has a chance at winning the big annual photo contest at the end of the year.
  • We of course reserve the right to intercede if we suspect some tom-foolery, but it’s now up to you! So get on it and start voting now!

Voting opens 1st April 2019

Wow, just wow. First up we have Ashley Garvin (who won in January), and yet again he shows us how amazing he is!  This amazing photograph is of the perfect location to look up in London. Check out the unique upwards view between the Willis Tower Watson building and two others.

Temple of the Wind God - Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Temple of the Wind God - Photo by Kuki Basto

Once again, Kuki Bastos takes us to an amazing location. This photo is of the Temple of the Wind God in the Tulum ruins. Tulum was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries. Somehow it managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico.

Hummelmora Ängar - Viksjö, Sweden

Hummelmora Ängar - Photo by Kristofer Liljeblad

Next up we have Swedish photographer Kristofer Liljeblad. His idyllic shot of Hummelmora Ängar is simply stunning. Hummelmora Ängar is a beautiful meadow area in Görväln’s nature reserve. A lovely place most times around the year with a lot of opportunities to catch everything from sunsets to all kind of animals. Except for the times when you are deeper in the forest, you’ll have an exceptional view of lake Mälaren.

Grande Anse des Salines - Sainte-Anne, Martinique

Grande Anse des Salines - Photo by Michel Bricteux
Michel shares this shot, our first drone photo submission. We were wondering when we would start to get drone photo locations, and it has begun with this great shot of Grande Anse des Salines. A beautiful long sandy beach that stretches for more than a kilometer. Great shot Michel, a unique angle, and I’m sure we’re not the only ones with drone envy now.

Wheel Inn - WestWell, Ashford, UK

Photo by Scott Goldsworthy

Scott Goldsworthy takes us to the village of WestWell.  Nestled within it sits the very photogenic Wheel Inn. This centuries old inn was used by pilgrims as they traveled from Winchester to the shrine of Thomas in Becket at Canterbury Kent. Scott recommends stopping there for a pint after a good day of exploring.

🏢 Meanwhile at PIXEO HQ 🏢

Well, I spent a few days last week in Brussels, Belgium and found this great shooting location. Not hard to do in the city that is home to the Grand Palace. As per usual, my day job didn’t leave much time to shoot so I stayed up all night Thursday to take photos. Light trails are always a favorite of mine and this view of St Michael and St Gudula Cathedral is one of my favorites of the trip.
