My best travel photograph

April 9, 2014

Back in January I wrote a post called ‘My Best Travel Photography so far‘; at the time, I think it probably was. But then I went to Norway and took this photo of a spectacular sunset….

Norwegian sky….which I think is probably one of the best photographs I’ve taken so far (absolutely no filter, the colours were really like that).

Governor's Beach Grand TurkAnd in February I took this photo on Governor’s Beach in Grand Turk, which is pretty cool – it makes me long to be on that beach…

Oresund BridgeBut if I look back at the photographs I’ve taken so far, then I think this one, of the Øresund Bridge between Sweden and Denmark is still my favourite (if you’ve ever watched The Bridge, you’ll know it as the um, Bridge), and I think probably my best travel photograph to date. I love how the bridge silhouetted against the night sky makes it look almost black and white. It feels like a ‘proper’ travel photograph. But most of all I’m proud of it because I know what it took to take it – I had to lean over the side of our ship’s balcony in the dark.

*This is my entry for the Gallery – the theme this week is ‘A photo I’m proud of’.

    3 stunning shot. I particularly like the bridge one though, something dark and eerie about it

    How fabulous to have the opportunity to take scenic photos like this Lizbeth.
    Thing is with this sort of photo is it always tells a story and in years to come you’ll look back on them and remember things like leaning over the side of a ship and nearly killing yourself to get a shot (it’s always good to embellish)

    Lovely photos Liz, I particularly like the bridge photo.

    Love the photos, especially the one of the bridge.

    All three are great photos, the second one makes me want summer to hurry up. It’s amazing the lengths we’ll go to, to get a photograph, good job you didn’t fall over the side!!

    All stunning photos, but I agree that one of the bridge really is special. It looks so striking and haunting looming up out of the darkness. I would have been terrified leaning out of the boat to take it!
