Alan Trevarton
Mellow Yellow (Lanzarote)
"A day of breathtaking contrasts from a bleak, jagged caldera to lunch on a black picon grit slope among rich green plants, crossing a plateau of yellow flowers in dappled sunlight to high sea cliffs with views to Isla Graciosa."
  Jennifer Nisbet
Life doesn't get much slower than this
"In October 2008 I visited Post Office Bay and posted a card to myself. In January 2014 it was delivered to me by hand, courtesy of another visitor to this beautiful Galapagos island. All good things come to those who wait!"

Sleepy Shore, Channel Islands

  Brian Anderson
Leutasch Valley (Austria)
"Arriving at the wonderful Inntaler Hof in the Austrian Tyrol, the view back down to the Leutasch valley took our breath away. Peaceful evening strolls were rewarded with neon green glow-worms and the distant jangling of cowbells."

Carol Shortt
Min Beach near the end of the day
"Shetland; wild and inaccessible ... not on this day. Some of the islands had been shrouded in an eerie fog but we had the most beautiful sunshine that made the blue water sparkle and the beaches look even more pristine."
  David Martin
Airborne Armchair
"From Gipfel, above Wengen, the hang-glider ran towards the edge and… soared upwards launching into space… like slow motion. The backdrop of the Eiger and the Monch created a suitable cradle within which he floated to view the mountains."

Rocca Calascio Fortress (Italy)
"The walk up through the snow was long and slow. When we finally reached the fortress we sat down in a sheltered spot in the winter sunshine to eat our picnic and drink in the view over the Navelli plain."
  John Pritchard
Punting
"Just messing about on the river ( Cam ), at King's College backs."

Jane Houston Green
Calm in Paradise (Thailand)
"Tragedy to tranquillity – every precious second, minute, hour – watching butterflies flit from shrub to tree, feeling warmth from a sparkling sun, snorkelling in a fish swirling sea and rhythmically swinging towards the top branches of verdant green trees."
  Kenny Mackie
Sandcastle
"Slow afternoon at Balmedie Beach near Aberdeen. No one around apart from a slowing wheeling seagull."

Katie Wilson
China
"We visited many temples during our stay in China. Even if they were busy, there were still moments of calm to be found. The rest of the world melted away as I focused on the flickering flames of these candles."
  Katie Wilson
Beijing, China
"We spent the day with a family in the Hutong area. This scene felt symbolic. It was not only a snapshot of everyday life, but also encapsulated the respite I felt from a capital that is so frenetic."

Mist-shrouded mountains
"Relaxing outside the mountain hut, we sipped our beers gratefully as we looked back over the way we’d walked from Obergurgl at the head of the valley, with the mountains shrouded in mist."
  John Davies
Red, green and gold
"We’d waited several days, but at last the storms blew away, the wind dropped, and the stars shone. We gazed, mesmerized, over the sea wall as the Northern Lights glowed above us in shimmering curtains."

John Davies
Magical Rainbow (Iceland)
"We’d waited several days, but at last the vile weather (snowstorms, gale-force winds, thick overcast) blew away, the wind dropped, and the stars shone. Several coachloads of awestruck aurora-chasers gazed, mesmerized, as the Northern Lights glowed above us."
  Jean Carpenter
Warm Welcome (Spain)
"After our walk in the mountains we drove up an ever narrowing winding concrete track to find our hotel. A tranquil place with a genuine warm welcome and amazing food prepared with care."

"A sea of poppies, distant green hills,absolute silence except for the high trilling of skylarks – this is the magic of Summer on the immense expanse of the Piano Grande at 4,500ft in the central Apennines."

"An unexpected win saw my husband and I having a relaxing spa break at the most gorgeous hotel.The roses were perfect and we were escorted round the Victorian gardens and invited to pick and eat a ripe fig."

An idyllic outlook
"This was taken from a fast train travelling between Mulhouse and Rome via Switzerland. It was amazingly beautiful and I would just love to visit one day although finding the actual location would be a very difficult task!"
  Margaret Conroy

  Catherine Rowlands
Drinking white wine in the sun
