Our winners today 🍍


🥇 Mt. Huangshan: The Yellow Mountains in the Clouds by @glecerioberto

This was the highlight of the trip! Mt. Huangshan or the Yellow Mountains is a famous tourist destination in the mountainous part of China. It's located 50 km north of Huangshan City. To get to the mountains, we had to ride a bus and a cable car. It was also my first time riding a cable car. That's why this trip was so memorable to me! The cable car ride alone was so exciting because of the view. I was a bit scared but the fear would instantly be replaced with awe when I just took in the beauty of the scenery around and below me.

🥈 Dark Hedges and Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland - Travel #63 by @vegoutt-travel

The shapes of the rocks along the Giant's Causeway are so intricate and beautiful. I have never seen rocks that are so perfectly shaped and naturally occurring. I am a lover of everything to do with dinosaurs. I have even contemplated many times on studying to be a Paleontologist. I suppose I still can, it's never too late to study. The reason I mention this is because many scientific studies indicate the development of these intricately shaped rocks occurred at the same time as the extinction of the dinosaurs.

🥉 The Pinnacles, Nambung National Park, Western Australia by @gingbabida

One of the tourist destinations in Perth, Western Australia is the Pinnacles, about two hours drive from Perth. The Pinnacles is the home of an amazing natural limestone structures, which some stands as high as 3.5 metres. It has been said that these natural limestone formation were formed approximately 25,000 to 30,000 years ago. It's really a wonder how these were formed in the middle of nowhere! Hahaha!
