June's Photo of the Month | Posted: 01 July 2017

Entitled Try These, this wonderful shot by Scott Hatch was captured on a walk from Sant'Agata to Sorrento in Italy. He says:

“We stopped to admire a vegetable store in Massa Lubrense. I think we made the clerk’s day when we fell for his offer to try what turned out to be super hot peppers."

June's judge was Penny Kendall, a Swiss-based photographer, writer, walker and skier. Here, she tells us why she selected this photograph as the winner, plus the two runners-up: "Wow, what a selection. The quality of the entries in this months competition is really high and all should be commended. However, I have chosen the following..."

Winner – "Try these!" on the Amalfi Coast by Scott Hatch
"The picture captures not only the beautiful produce but the fact that the photographer is taking time to stop and engage with the shop-keeper - just what we like at Inntravel. But it sounds like they got more than they bargained for..."

First Runner up – "Oban Dawn" by Christine Roe
"After driving through the night we arrived in Oban early to catch the first ferry to Mull. Dawn was just breaking and although we were tired we enjoyed watching the slow, sleepy town begin to awake."

Penny says: "There's a lovely sense of stillness and calm in this picture."

Second Runner up – "Snowbathers" by David Pechey
"Our Inntravel trip to the Engadine found us at the top of the funicular on Muttas Muragl. There, basking in the warm sunlight from the blue sky above and the snowlight reflected from below we discovered these “snowbathers."

Penny says: "A fun picture that just says relax!"

The shortlisted images can be viewed in the June Moments Gallery. To see all 41 entries, take a look at the album we’ve created on Facebook.
