Thanks to Michela from rockytravel.net I am taking part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots.
I wasn’t surprised how difficult it can be to pick only 7 photos from 1000s I have in the archive. It probably would be easier to pick Top100, but here we go.
A photo that…takes my breath away
I was siting on the cliffs where Nullarbor Plain meets Great Australian Bight with whales swimming under my feet and was watching to endless horizon of the Great Australian Bight in South Australia. The view which takes your breath away.
A photo that…makes me laugh or smile
What a polite squirrel I met in the market 🙂
A photo that…makes me dream
Who wouldn’t want to spent time on pure white sand beach with crystal water? Champagne beach is called best beach in Vanuatu and is one of best beaches in the South Pacific and I can’t argue with that.
A photo that…makes me think
Everybody heard about global warming, but not so many people saw what is happening. Glaciers are one of best examples to see effects of climate change. I saw it in Southern Alps in New Zealand, in Rocky Mountains in Canada and US. This is current photo of Mikkajekna glacier in Sarek National Park in Sweden. The mark on the rock shows where tip of glacier was 22 years ago. Will be any glacier here in 50 years?
A photo that…makes my mouth water
Have you ever tried to taste Beaver tail? You should try one in Canada. BeaverTails is chain of pastry stands which sells pastry shaped like beaver’s tail. It was one of my favorite desserts in Canada. I would love to have one now 🙂
A photo that…tells a story
There is a statue in Sydney near State Library of New South Wales. It was erected in honor of Matthew Flinders who was first to sail around Australia. Can you tell what is so special about this statue?
Need a hint? Check behind the statue. Can you see another small statue in the lower left corner? It is Trim. The cat. The statue was erected by Trim’s admirers and I just want to quote Matthew Flinders:
“The best and most illustrious of his race the most affectionate of friends, faithful of servants and best of creatures. He made the tour of the globe and a voyage to Australia, which he circumnavigated, and was ever the delight and pleasure of his fellow voyagers”
A photo that…I am most proud of (aka my worthy of National Geographic shot)
This is hard one, because I have tons of aka worthy of National Geographic shots 🙂 But because I can show only one, so it will be this one. It was taken during my volunteering in game reserve in South Africa. It wasn’t most friendly lion, but I loved to make shots of it.
Uff, I done it!
Now I would like to nominate 5 other bloggers I love to read and I could see they have lots of pictures to show

Great shots, especially the lion…although I would like to try the beavertail once too, looks delicious… Thanks for your comment on my blog ! Greetzzzz, Marcellinho.
I was going to say my favourite was dreaming away on a beach with coconut in hand, but gee, the glacier shot really is one to make you think –
Great shots, and I never knew about Trim’s statue 🙂
Fantastic shots!! All I can say to the mouth watering shot is great minds think alike.

Love the Champagne Beach shot and the lion is an amazing photo! Believe it or not, I just had my first BeaverTail last month when my younger daughter and I visited Ottawa – delicious!!
What a great collection of super shots! I love the Vanuatu shot. It’s so tropical and one that need to be hung to remind us of a vacation. That lion shot is absolutely beautiful. Wow on those teeth.
