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.

Relaxing at the marina
Letting life wash by with a relaxing stroll along the marina.
Helen Jackson
Sunset at the Avenue of the Baobabs
Waiting for sunset was a slow experience and gave us change to wind down after a long day of travelling on dirt roads.
Sue Stempt
Still waters
Sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the tide roll away - so still that the sunlight captures and highlights the only real movement in water.
Owain Thomas
Evening sightseers at the Teatro Romano
Malaga is a beautiful city to walk around on a warm October evening and the Teatro Romano is great place to stop and soak up the atmosphere.
Nick Board
The Path Ahead
Middle Earth, and the way ahead to laguna des los tres and the Fitzroy Massif.
Debbie Kent
Sleeping beach huts
Walking back from Deal along the coast path at dusk in July, I came across these beach huts. All empty, they appeared to be sleeping after a hectic day. Such a tranquil scene and beautiful wildflowers in the foreground.

A refreshing break from the midday sun: tea in a Berber household the summit of Mt Matajur
On a hike with Ibrahim in the hills above Ouirgane in the High Atlas, we are taking a break for refreshing mint tea and a packed lunch in a friendly Berber household.
Ian Stevens
Brick factory worker, India
Every day we encountered something new. Our visit to an Indian brick factory was inspiring and enchanting.
James LePage
Monochrome magic
Cross country skiing around the lake at Fefor my wife and I paused to admire the scene. The snow fell so softly, hardly any breeze to disturb each flake on its descent. A monochrome world of silence. Magic.
Michelle Clayton
Red sky at night!
Beautiful sunset over the River Dee in Banchory where I grew up. Such a lovely part of the world, made even more stunning by sunsets!
