Win a walking holiday on Lanzarote!
Our Slow Moments photography competition is back! There’s a £200 Inntravel voucher to be won each month, and a holiday-cum-photographic-assignment on Lanzarote for this year’s overall winner.

What do we mean by a Slow Moment? Last year’s winning photo (which earned Inntraveller Allan Harris a walking holiday along the Shores of Lake Constance) was a wonderful scene of locals on Mandalay’s U Bein Bridge at sunset. Our monthly winners included Jackie Matthews’ cool-looking cat in Morocco’s ‘blue town’ of Chefchaouen, and Paul Herbert’s photo of a relaxed-looking boat owner waiting for the tide to rise on a beach in Jersey.
So a Slow Moment can be (virtually) anything. It needn’t even be ‘slow’ in the traditional sense of the word. It’s something that makes you stop and look closer – an aspect of nature, a perfectly framed view, an unusual or unexpected sight, or a small detail which somehow tells – or alludes to – some kind of story. The sort of thing that you will only see when taking the Slow Lane and really engaging with your surroundings.

It's a dog's life
With temperatures soaring into the high thirties, the heat of the afternoon Chilean sun is too much, even for San Pedro de Atacama's local dog population.

The Tarn Valley between the Pont du Tarn and Le Merlet
This part of the hike was, for us, the most magical part of our Cevennes walking holiday. It was a grey day, as we followed the sinuous Tarn river, and its pools, from the Pont du Tarn in the direction of Le Merlet. Despite continuous rain the impact of the valley, looking back towards Bellecoste, was profound.

Sailing to the Sunset
A boat trip along the Canal & at the end we were greeted with a stunning sunset, a perfect ending to a fantastic day.

The Identity Parade
Driving through Mkhuze Game Reserve we heard a commotion in the distance and through the grass and foliage spotted this line up of white faced whistling ducks, as if they taking part in an identity parade. KZN, S.Africa
