Lonely Planet’s Winter from your Window competition, where we encouraged our followers to submit pictures of what they could see from their windows via our Facebook page, closed recently. We have had a great response, with a total of 411 pictures submitted between the 16th and 31st of January. The standard of the competition was so high, we have had to mull it over for several days – some members of the judging panel even consulted with their pillows before reaching a conclusion…
Some of you interpreted “taking a picture from your window” loosely, so we got some entries from people sending pictures from hotel windows, car windows, gas platform windows (!) – even some from people who live in houses with no windows!
We wanted to show you a selection of some of the best submissions, so check out the following 20 – they are listed in no particular order. We will be picking the winner and runner ups shortly from amongst them (watch this space and our Facebook page for updates):
1. The sun is rising outside my window in Chur, in the middle of the Swiss alps – Marco L.
16. There is something about this view spot from my window in Abu Halifa, Kuwait. Perhaps, the dramatic sunset during winter here. I can write poems and songs with endless words from this composition – Vergel B.
19. Magical Northern lights show! and just out of my window :) It was taken on the night of 22.January in Aurland, Norway. So powerful it was that even down in the west part of Norway could it be seen – Fabiola S.
Which one is your favourite?
