Looking straight into the eyes of the king of the Savannah in Tanzania.
——
It is that time of the year that we count down our favourite images of the year.
This one makes the list because it was one of the best moments that we had when we were on Safari in Tanzania.
We followed 3 males for 2 hours but it was when one walked right at us and came so close we could have reached out and touched him, that I caught my breath.
What an incredible experience.

This shot is the inspiration for today’s question. 
What is you favourite animal encounter? 
Have you seen a lion in the wild?

@_markfitz What an incredible experience! 🦁🙌🏼

@expertvagabond What a shot @theplanetd! He looks hungry...

The magical Tiger's Nest Monastery in Bhutan.
----
It had been one of my dream locations to photograph for years. After seeing it for the first time in a magazine I knew I had to journey to Bhutan to trek up to this mythical place.

This place is the inspiration for today’s question.
Was there ever a place you saw in a magazine, newspaper or online that inspired you to travel to the destination? 
Did it live up to the expectations? 
Where do you look for inspiration today?

We want to foster more of a conversation here so feel free to leave a comment and discuss your experiences with other travellers. We can learn a lot from each other. -----

@jackfusco Not a bad view :)

There is beauty everywhere you look on the Amalfi Coast in Italy.
——
Driving the Amalfi Coast is something everyone should do in their life. The scenery is just breathtaking no matter which direction you look.
—-
This shot was taken looking North from Ravello. The coastline is dotted with beautiful little towns just like you see here.
——
It is no wonder this part of Italy is so popular. I would recommend that you visit during the shoulder seasons as it can get pretty crazy in the height of summer.

@maries.miles Beautiful shot!

@your_passport So true! We were amazed 😍😍

Sunrise at Fairytale Canyon in Kyrgyzstan.
—-
Located on the southern shore of Lake Issyk-Kul is where you will find Skazka Canyon.
We got up early to catch the sunrise here and man was it worth it.
We flew the drone for some overhead shots but this one that I took in my way back is definitely one of my favourites.
If you get a chance to visit Kyrgyzstan make sure you do it!
It is a country filled with beautiful places like this!

@martinsolocinski Really a fairy tale

Hiking in the Scottish Highlands!
—-
One of the best things about doing the North Coast 500 was the number of hikes. 
There are too many to count and they all go through some amazing scenery.
—-
On this day we were on our way to Applecross and stopped on the side of the road when the sky got really dramatic.
Walking along this path we strolled hiked for about an hour.
That is one thing I love about traveling with no set schedule. You have time to explore.

What is your favourite hike in he world?

The mighty Kegon Falls in Nikko Japan.
——
I really wanted to see this waterfall in the fall. The colours just really popped.
It stands at almost 100m tall and flows out of Lake Chuzenji.
It is also ranked as one of Japan’s three most beautiful waterfalls!
—-
You can take an elevator down to 2 different viewing platforms which allows you to get the best views of this beautiful waterfall.
—-
This was one of the highlights of our trip to Nikko with @tobu_japan_trip.
You have to visit this once in your life!

The bridge to paradise at Pyramid Lake outside of Jasper, Alberta.

Sunrise is the time to photograph this spot. Not only do you have it all to yourself but the light is just spectacular.
I love the way the bridge leads the eye. 
When you have the perfect conditions in Jasper it almost difficult to take a bad shot .

A Canadian scene unfolds in front of us just outside of Jasper, Alberta
——
As we were returning from our sunrise shoot at Pyramid Lake this scene caught my eye as we were driving past.
The lake was like glass and there was this lone canoe just off shore.
I remember turning to Deb and saying “Isn’t this just the perfect Canadian moment?”
——
That is the thing about driving around this area of Alberta. Beauty is around every corner.

The sun sets over the Tokyo Skytree in Japan.
——
This was my first time in Tokyo and man what a city. There is so many areas to visit and the Skytree is a must. 
We travelled to Nikko with @tobu_japan_trip who has a railway that leaves from the SkyTree to Nikko. You can be in the countryside in 2 hours. 
But for now we are enjoying the bright lights of Tokyo. 
It offers incredible views over the city but it also makes for a great subject, especially when it is lit up, form many different spots around the city.
——
We got to explore many different areas of the city but we will be back as there is so much more that we want to do.

@travelingcanucks Love the reflection. Can't wait to return to Tokyo in October! Love Japan

A beautiful vista over Lake Chuzenji here in Nikko, Japan.

The fall colours are out in full force here in Nikko. We took the cable car up to this lookout and man was it worth it.
It was like Mother Nature created the perfect scene.
The way the lake drains over the cliff side to form the Kegon Waterfall is picture perfect.
We have really loved this area of Japan and I hope you can see why.

@kirstenalana Well that’s just stunning! I can see why you’re enjoying Japan.

Long shadows and a long road on the Icefields Parkway near Jasper, Alberta.
——
Out of all of the times we have visited Alberta we had never made it up to Jasper. We didn’t know what we were missing.
Driving down the parkway was such an incredible experience.
There was beauty at every turn.
—-
This was definitely one of my favourite ones. Located just outside the entrance road to Athabaska Falls this part of the park at is just beautiful.
Add the long shadows from the evening sun and you have a spectacular scene.

When the light is right at Pyramid Lake in Jasper, Alberta.
——
Our first morning in Jasper and it did not disappoint. We headed out to Pyramid Lake for sunrise and the water was like glass.
Combine that with the beautiful colours and you have the recipe for a great shot.
——
One of the hints. Have found here in Jasper is that you seem to have all of these beautiful spots to yourself.
Gotta love Alberta!
