"I was on safari in South Africa with my uncle, when we came across a little village. We stopped to chat with the local people and to take some photographs. The villagers welcomed us with open arms. I played football with the young boy in this photograph and he was proud to show me his bike. His mother was more then happy for me to take their picture. I love this shot – it reminds me of my travels in Africa, and that this young family was kind enough to let me into their life for a few hours.", says our reader Aaron Smith Photograph: Aaron Smith . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #safari #southafrica #village #photographs #football #youngboy #happyfaces #thewindow #motherandson

Located in one of Iceland’s most remote northern villages, the Arctic Henge is a colossal piece of stone construction that, when finished, will make Stonehenge look like amateur hour. This was started already back in 1996 👌⠀ Pic by @karl_shakur#Iceland #NorthernLights #LonelyPlanet #LPMI #Repost

"I arrived in Florence much later than planned. With the sun already setting, I decided to bypass hotel check-in and head straight to the top of Il Duomo. With my heavy bag on my shoulder, 414 steps later, I was at the top; the 360° view that greeted me was worth every minute of the long climb. I stayed up on the windy roof until well after dark, watching life in the squares below and the bright trails of cars driving around. Italy is so beautiful; it keeps me coming back time and time again.", says our reader Nick Jackson Photograph: Nick Jackson . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #florence #IIduomo #climb #afterdark #italy #cityscapes

"Kolkata’s Muslims from all over the city gather for the grand namaz on the eve of Eid-Ul-Fitr. This particular gathering took place in the early morning at Red Road in Kolkata near the Esplanade bus stand, where they sat down to pray. I spotted this curious boy while the adults were praying to Allah. His expressions were full of curiosity. When the adults bent in prostration to touch their foreheads to the ground, I could see this child more clearly, framed by the wave of people around him.", says our reader Ayan Mukerjee Photograph: Ayan Mukerjee . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #kolkata #eidulfitr #redroad #esplande #busstand #namaz #prayers

"I had driven down to Brussels from Amsterdam with my wife and daughter on our holiday. We headed straight for the Grand Place to see it in the evening light. This was during this year's soccer World Cup. Holland was winning a match and the whole place was abuzz. We stopped for directions, when I noticed this painter in the centre of the Grand Place. She appeared to be in an introspective mood, oblivious to the world around her. I wanted to freeze the moment in her own spotlight and paintings.", says our reader Arindam Sil Photograph: Arindam Sil . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #brussels #amsterdam #grandplace #holland #netherland #streetart #artshop #sketches

"A diurnal and mildly venomous reptile, the green vine snake is found in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. The snake hunts lizards and reptiles using its unusual binocular vision. It was a Herculean task for me to get this close-up of the reptile. I spotted it on a tree at eye level. Most of the time it was trying to move away, but, ultimately, it paused and my patience paid off – I was able capture this shot focusing on its hypnotic sharp eyes.", says our reader Akash Akinwar Photograph: Akash Akinwar . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #venomous #reptile #india #srilanka #bangladesh #burma #thailand #cambodia #vietnam #snakes #snakeeyes #amboli #maharashtra

"I travelled to North Korea, or DPRK as they prefer to call it, for a week in September last year as part of a guided group tour, the only way you’re allowed to travel in DPRK. What you see and do, and where you go, eat and stay are usually predetermined. Your movement is very restricted, so that early morning run through downtown Pyongyang is out of the question. On September 9, National Day in Pyongyang, we made the mandatory visit to the mausoleum of the last two leaders of North Korea and were lucky to be able to catch a military parade. We drove around the city looking for any mass dancing taking place, which, we were told, is a spontaneous, last-minute arrangement. Our guide was tipped off to a session not far from where we were and five minutes later, we were at the Workers Party Foundation Monument. Despite the restrictions we had gotten used to on our tour, we were encouraged to interact and join in the dancing. Other than the DPRK flags fluttering around the city, Pyongyang literally lacks colour. These participants wore their national dress to celebrate National Day. Despite the boring surrounding architecture, the shadow of an ugly socialist monument and even the dull skies, the costumes, the upbeat North Korean music, the spontaneity and, more importantly, the bright and smiling faces made for a colourful capture.", says our reader Ernie Colaco Photograph: Ernie Colaco . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #northkorea #dprk #nationalday #pyongyang #monument #celebration

"In Diskit, Nubra Valley, on the way to Siachen, there is a beautiful seated statue of Maitreya Buddha, who is also known as the future Buddha. The statue is 110 feet tall, facing Pakistan and overlooking the Shyok River. I asked my wife to pose in front of the statue to give its imposing scale some perspective. In the backdrop is the beautiful Diskit Monastery.", says our reader Sanjay Podder Photograph: Sanjay Podder . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #diskit #nubravalley #siachen #maitreyabuddha #statue #shyokriver #monastery #ladakh #jammukashmir

"I flew into Tari, a small, dusty town with a small dusty airstrip, to stay with the Huli Wigmen, a Highlands tribe. I was lucky enough to meet this Wigman preparing for a sing sing – a celebratory dance. I sat beside him as he prepared his face: an undercoat of oily white, then a clay ochre base and, finally, earthy red highlights. Using hand signals, he demonstrated what he was going to do next, before picking up a broken mirror and carefully applying the final strokes. He might not have fully realised how brilliant he looked in the afternoon sun, but, for me, watching him go through this ritual was more inspiring than the dance itself.", says our reader Guy Needham Photograph: Guy Needham . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #tari #airstrip #huliwigmen #tradition #performance #art #paintedfaces #afternoonsun #papuanewguinea

"It was a late-season snow storm and I was brewing a cuppa in my home at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains when I caught some movement out of the corner of my eye through the window. It was this red-shouldered hawk landing on our garden obelisk. I always keep a camera close at hand for just such opportunities – for us non-professionals, most photos are pictures of opportunity. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world, but more than half my photos were probably taken in my own backyard.", says our reader Jim Adwers Photograph: Jim Adwers . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #blueridgemountains #winter #hawk #birds #wildlife #inmybackyard

"As soon as I was led into the courtyard of Pitam Niwas Chowk at the City Palace by my guide, my eyes popped in wonder. I tried not to blink in order to take in the beauty that surrounded me. The vibrancy of the place was breathtaking. I loved this particular gate, the Southwest Lotus Gate, with its flamboyant colours. Standing there, admiring the intricate details, I knew it would be a moment I would cherish forever. Even now, when I think about that courtyard, I can almost smell the rose petals that were scattered all around.", says our reader Srishti Lal Photograph: Srishti Lal . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #courtyard #pitamniwaschowk #citypalace #southwest #lotusgate #doors #rajasthan #jaipur #india #indiabeautiful

"I’ve been to almost all the national parks in the country, but Kaziranga is among my top three, because its weather, landscape, flora and fauna are so different from the other parks. On this particular trip, with the clouds rolling in for the monsoon, we were lucky to spot some incredible wildlife. We saw this mother elephant and calf wading through a stream full of hyacinths and wildflowers. The calf stuck close to the mother and seemed to emulate everything she did, and both seemed to be sporting huge grins throughout.", says our reader Kunal Gupta Photograph: Kunal Gupta . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #nationalpark #wildlife #india #safari #wildlifephotography #kaziranga #assam #india

"On a recent trip to Barsana and Nandgaon near Mathura, I had an opportunity to participate in the local Holi celebrations. Legend has it that Lord Krishna visited his beloved Radha on this day, only to be driven away with sticks by the women of the village for playfully teasing them. The women in this village re-enact this by taking sticks to their menfolk, who are left to defend themselves with shields! This man caught my attention due to the profusion of colours on his face, hair and eyelash, a stark contrast to the whiteness of his eye.", says our reader Chirag Shah Photograph: Chirag Shah . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #barsana #nandgaon #mathura #lordkrishna #radha #holi #festivalofcolours #folkart #performance

"Varanasi, or Benaras, is one of the oldest living cities in the world. During my visit to India’s City of Light, I noticed a group of entertainers performing with fire poi (fiery torches on chains ) for tourists. I was very taken by their enthusiasm and wanted to capture the event. I had no tripod with me, which made it difficult to capture their motion, but, after a few tries, I managed to get this shot. It was a challenging shot, which is why this is one of my favourite photos to date.", says our reader Sirsendu Gayen Photograph: Sirsendu Gayen . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #varanasi #benaras #cityoflight #india #indiabeautiful #fireworks

"On a lazy afternoon, I walked my son to Buddha Park, a local garden with swings and play sets for children. I carried my camera and macro lens along to try and capture a few images of my son, when I came across some bees in the process of extracting nectar from the flowers in the garden This little bee, much smaller than the others flying around, paused to sip from these beautiful mauve and purple flower, giving me the perfect opportunity to take a few shots.", says our reader Randeep Singh Photograph: Randeep Singh . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #buddhapark #bees #birds #flowers #nectar #garden

"This picture was taken in Iceland on a bus trip that was supposed to show us the Northern Lights. It was the second night my wife and I had been out hoping to see them, with no success. Our coach driver took us to this spot, leading people to the harbour wall to look for the lights for an hour. I stayed and took a picture of this little house against the starry backdrop. It was quite a tricky shot to take, given the low light and the number of people constantly walking past, so, while it’s not technically perfect, I really like it.", says our reader Jim Law⠀ Photograph: Jim Law ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #iceland #northernlights #magicalskies #starrynight #reykjanespeninsula

"The Falkland Islands blew me away from start to finish. The highlight was two magical days at The Neck on Saunders Island, with just two other visitors and thousands of penguins for company. I found a colony of southern rockhopper penguins on the far side of the beach. These fellas have plenty of character, to go with their punk hairstyles and devilish red eyes. Their most compelling attribute was the two-footed hop they used to climb the rocks. I watched them swim in and shake themselves dry before hopping up to their nests on the cliff above – a climb I’m certain I wouldn’t survive if I had to hop all the way.", says our reader John Potts⠀ Photograph: John Potts⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #flakislands #theneck #saundersisland #penguins

"Tshechu are religious festivals held in Bhutan on the 10th day of every month in the Tibetan lunar calendar. The tshechu, held in Paro district, is among the biggest of them all, with a large number of participants and an equally large audience. The most interesting part of the festival is the cham dances, banned in neighbouring Tibet, in which costumed and masked dancers present vignettes and moral sketches from the life of the Padmasambhava, the 9th-century Nyingmapa teacher. These are a must-see for anyone travelling through Bhutan.", says our reader Mithun Basak Photograph: Mithun Basak . . #lpmi #lpmitravels #postcards #instaclick #shotoftheday #photograph #beautifuldestination #tshechu #bhutan #tibet #padmasambhava #nyingmapa
