Vacations are a time of relaxation and fun, and also a great time to practice your photography! Whether you’re traveling the world, going on a family vacation, or just taking a short weekend break, documenting your trip with photographs is a great way to record your vacation memories forever.
Vacation photographs often capture a perfect moment in a favorite place. When we travel, we typically have five different cameras. Yep, FIVE ~ our iPhones, Patrick’s Sony ILCE-6000, and our Olympus TG-3 for macro and underwater photos. Crazy, I know.
Granted, the number of photos we have to catalog upon our return can be a very daunting. But it is always a delight to relive our holiday.
Destinations Travel Photo Contest
From wildlife to waterfalls, sunsets to mountains, peaceful farms to bustling big cities, the Destinations newspaper insert features photographs from readers across the country. Readers across the country are now able to vote for their favorite photos.
Many of the best photographs will be included in a special 20-page Destinations travel section that will be published Aug. 24 in your local newspaper and on the website.
We’ve entered the photo contest. If you like our submissions, please take a moment to register and then vote for your favorite photo. You don’t have to choose one of ours, there are many other submissions.
