Cow, Romania

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel Photos

This picture was taken in a small village in central Romania. It was the end of the day and we had a short time to wander around the streets to find interesting people for portrait shoots. Suddenly we heard some bells ringing from the end of the street, and we saw a big herd of cows walking toward us. The herd had just come back from the fields outside town to go back to the cowshed in the village. I saw that one cow was about to cross the local bar and I ran fast to catch it. I finished the visit in the village without any portrait shoots, but I was lucky to get this single special moment.

Bagpiper, Scotland

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel Photos

While on a 20-day tour through England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland, one of my favorite pictures out of the 1,500 I had taken was this one. There was a bagpiper at the tourist pull-off area playing for tips. When I showed this picture to my family, they said it looked like the piper was playing to the mountains, and that’s how we like to think of it.

Fishermen, United Arab Emirates

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel Photos

A special technique used for fishing in Fujairah, UAE, is called dhagwa. The net consists of two parts: a red part where fish are trying to escape and an open part near the coast with which they collect the fish. The white dots are birds waiting to collect some fish.

Reflection, Reykjavík

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel Photos

I was photographing the sunset over Reykjavík Harbor, Iceland, near sunset (around 11:30 p.m.). While sitting there with my tripod waiting, I turned around and saw this beautiful abstract reflection in the windows of the office building behind me.

A wonderful crinoid shrimp photographed during a dive in Moalboal, Philippines. Very hard to find because this shrimp perfectly mimics the crinoid.
