Travel Photography


This week's theme is TRAVEL. With travel photography, you don't need to travel far from home to get some good travel shots. Any photo from the area you do not live can be considered travel photography if it is a place that you do not go to often. So let's see your best travel shots and share the beauty of the world.

How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?


The contest is broken up into 2 different tiers. Each will have a different rewards for the winners based on what tier you enter into.

Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:

1st5 Hive4 Hive
2nd3 Hive2 Hive
3rd2 Hive1 Hive

Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days and close on the 7th day so that winners can be picked and the new post can be made.

There will be a new theme announced each week. I am hoping to have the whole year planned out and will be able to have that posted for you all to prepare images for the contest.

How to enter


When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

That's pretty much it, drop a photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. You are also encouraged to join the Photography Lovers Community and make your post to the Photography Lovers Community.

Additional Notes


  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state which tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and if you are caught plagiarizing, you will be blacklisted from competing in my competitions.

  • You are encouraged to share your posts on social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, etc. If you do so, use the #posh tag on your post and share the link of your share in the comment section of your post for a chance for extra curation from curation projects that are curating posts that are promoting Hive to sites outside of the blockchain.

Hi, This is my entry.
Tier: Amateur.

Eilean Donan Castle in the Scottish Highlands is the true picture of what feudal Scotland was like, seeing her imposing figure so well preserved is like transporting yourself into the past, walking across its stone bridge and climbing its walls is like being in a moment Scottish history. It is a wonderful place that everyone should someday visit.


A great selection of images, well done everyone!

Eristos beach, Tilos, Greece. A place that left to me many Sweet memories!

What is better than really nice landscape?
I would find few things, but when you are on the travel and you get to the point where you simply have to stop whererver you are and whatever you are doing is a magical moment and mostly it is for the great landscape...


This was at a small town called Lafayette , it is in the Contra Costa County and is one of the best places to live in California. The town of Lafayette only has a population of about 26,000 thousand and most of them are retirees , so it's quite a cool peaceful town to live in and what a place to retire just walk out your front door and your breathing all that fresh mountain air and looking at all that greenery around you.
