Jim Lloyd
San Sebastian (La Gomera, Canaries)
"A fitting end to a fantastic walking holiday on the island a La Gomera - a true hidden gem!"
  Jim Lloyd
Mount Teide from La Gomera (Canaries)
"As we emerged from the lush cloud forest we had clear views across to Tenerife and could see our destination far below. Thank goodness Inntravel had organised a taxi to the start at the highest point on the island!"

Valle Hermoso (La Gomera, Canaries)
"The starting point for a fantastic self guided walk on the beautiful island of La Gomera"
  Alan Ramsey
Toe-dipping (Pacific Coast, Costa Rica)
"The sun has gone but it's not turned dark. Just a few precious moments to savour the end of the day."

Alexandra Novitske
Boys Will be Boys (Kathmandu)
"In Nepal I was exploring a temple on a rainy day. These young monks were playing, swinging down the stairs by the strings of prayer flags. When I started taking shots they tried their best to swing the highest. "
  Logan MacFarlane
Tranquility (Applecross, Scotland)
"Climbing up the infamous Bealach na Ba road to Applecross, stopping for a panoramic gaze back over Loch Kishorn. Rewarded with solitude,tranquility and wonder."

Johanna Bradley
Sky meets sea (Blackhall Rocks, UK)
"A Spring day. A stroll on the beach. The soft swirl of the incoming tide."
  Richard Wood
Achmore, Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides
"This was my view to work during a secondment to the Outer Hebrides. Over the month I tried unsuccessfully to capture this majestic scene, taking 400 photographs in all. This was the 399th. The 400th was another failure."

Susan Schultz
Olive seedlings (France)
"These olive seedlings were displayed outside a little shop in the ancient walled city of Carcassonne. I just loved the simple line, and the pretty striped and solid-colour pots."
  Susan Schultz
Picturesque ruin (Rosheim, Alsace)
"This ruined building – and in particular its window – caught my attention not just because of its beauty, but also because of its incongruity: a decrepit ruin in the centre of an otherwise immaculate, manicured village."

John Schultz
Sausages! (Camargue, France)
"Leaning against the ancient city walls was a stall selling sausages from the Auvergne. Not only do the French have numerous varieties of mushroom: the same applies to their sausages!"
  John Schultz
Centuries of dust (Spain)
"The stillness of this remarkable monochrome room, undisturbed since the early days of the sherry bodega, made nearly as much of an impression on me as the free tastes of sherry!"

John Maxwell
Feeling on top of the world (Quito, Ecuador)
"Climbing up the slope of Cotopaxi was a challenge. The loose stones made progress hard. Every ten paces or so a break was needed. I turned and looked back to where we had been. This view was our reward."
  John Maxwell
Magic Moment (Lake Iseo, Italy)
"Walking through the wetlands reserve next to the lake on the most glorious sunny day. No people. No noise. Able to stop and observe nature in all its tiny detail. Perfect peace."

Nick Board
Nearly home (Vietnam)
"A young girl from the Black Hmong people takes a break above her home in the Muong Hoa valley."
  Rosemary Brown
Trail through time (Calheta, Madeira)
"Except for the sea, this emerald trail tucked beneath vertiginous mountains, was the sole access to the world outside Paúl do Mar for centuries. We followed it down to an oceanside feast of fresh fish and local wines."

John Schultz
Looking back... (Kandersteg, Switzerland)
"We were returning home after our very first Inntravel holiday, and our very first winter activities holiday. Suddenly the train revealed a glorious view back up the valley. What a memorable scene to take away with us."
  Susan Schultz
A touch of frost (Sherwood Forest, UK)
"A magical early morning scene in January. The ducks were landing on the ice of the frozen lake; everything else seemed motionless. Not a breath of wind."

Gaz Williams
Serenity
"Early morning on the Jubilee River. No sound, movement or even colour, just the peaceful glide of the swan to disturb the atmosphere."
  Beverley Fletcher
High flying birthday (UK)
"Who'd have thought a £1 packet of aeroplanes could take off so well?"

Early morning beach view (Pak Nam Pran, Thailand)
"Taken on an early morning walk on the beach"
  Keith Noble
Sand waves (Pak Nam Pran, Thailand)

  André Gauthier

Serenity (Australia)
"My own world – all to myself."
  Neil Sandry
Amazing breakfast surprise
"This was the amazing site that was waiting for us after breakfast following our first night in the Etosha Game Reserve in Namibia. It was even more special after a relatively "quiet" previous evening at the water hole!"

Carol Ware
Solitude (Antarctica)
"This shot captures the solitude of man launching kayaks into the icy waters of the great Antarctica wilderness surrounded by ice floes. He is alone in the most humbling and powerful place on earth."
  Paul Lyons
Waiting (Spain)
"Late afternoon, at the Barcelona Franca railway station. It's deserted in the siesta hours, except for a solitary figure waiting patiently for a train to bring a friend, or maybe a relative."

Jacqui Morley
Lindisfarne Sunrise (UK)
"Starting the day off at a leisurely pace as the sun rises over the sea."
  Ian Burnham
Hill-top town and snow-covered mountains
"Driving south in Umbria and spotted this beautiful town contrasted against stunning snow covered mountains."

Keith Preece
Harewood Churchyard, UK
"This church is beautiful with Alabaster monuments of the local gentry, and there are so many bluebells in the burial ground outside. Being well into the park and having to walk there on foot, it is such a peaceful spot."
 
  Chrissie Walker
Crater Lake
"A hot day by Crater Lake, Oregon USA, which is famed for its blue waters. There were no boats on the lake, no cars. Nothing to do but sit and sleep in the heat of the day."

Margaret Conroy
Chartres en Lumiere, France
"Chartres en Lumière – a magical light show around the town. We rounded a corner and saw this deserted church façade brilliantly lit. Superb – and not another soul about."
  John Smith
Galapagos
"This marine iguana seems lost in contemplation, a slow moment indeed."

Liz Hylton
Slow Boat on Bohinj
"A peaceful and tranquil moment captured at the quiet end of Lake Bohinj, away from the village. This was a lovely, walking holiday taking in Lakes Bled and Bohinj and Kranjska Gora. Superb!"
  Sarah Cole
Afternoon nap
"Afternoons in Vietnam can get very hot, this boat owner had tied up her boat and was floating off to dream land."

Eric Eisenhandler
Chinese fishing net at sunset, Cochin
"This old way of fishing, lowering a net using a wooden assembly operated by manual effort, has been preserved here partly for tourists but also to provide for the local fish stalls. It's a very calm way to do things."
  Eric Eisenhandler
Making up for Kathakali dance, Kerala, India
"One of the lead characters in a Kathakali dance performance is being made up – it took nearly an hour, and was fascinating to watch."

Mike Curry
Northern Lights Tromsø
"My wife arranged an Inntravel trip to see the Northern Lights for my 50th, and what a show we had! A true slow moment as the exposure was 30 seconds and we waited ages to see it!"
  David Brierley
Cleaning the Sacred Stones, Machu Picchu
"As we viewed the mighty citadel we were captivated by the workmen up their ladders, what were they doing we asked our guide, cleaning the sacred stones with lolly pop sticks was the reply. This does not damage the stones."

Simon Garvey
Cadiz Waterfront
"The sun's last glow was just visible against an inky sky and the crescent moon punctuated the darkness. A still and cool end to a great day in Cadiz."
  Simon Garvey
Dunes Sunrise (USA)
"Death Valley isn't always red-hot as I discovered when waiting for sunrise on a sub-zero February morning. But it was worth it – the sun gave the dunes a golden glow and picked out their tiny ripples."

Tim Izzet
El Hierro
"Where the Slow Lane takes you to... beyond the crowds and above the clouds."
  Hayley Smart
Hot Tubs & Rainbows (UK)
"My slow moment occurred in a hot tub on a muddy field. Rain poured but warm water soothed our chilled bones. An extraordinary rainbow grew in the skies as I watched hope wrap its arms around us during cold times."

Richard Priest
Sunshine rest (Banff, Canada)
"After a morning spent skiing the sun came out and it was time to relax, enjoy the sun and cool down."
  Bill Swan
Clouds in the Picos (Spain)
"Snow patches on the footpath bore no footprints; we were the first walkers here last summer. The clouds flowed past like a slow, turbulent river in the sky. The silence and the sense of isolation were mystical in their intensity."
