Canadian Rockies

By Julieanne Rielly

Julieanne Rielly captured this incredible view of Peyto Lake, in the Canadian Rockies. She said the climb was worth the chance to see the blue colour from the glacier. We wholeheartedly agree!

With soaring peaks, alpine meadows, spectacular lakes, untouched forest, waterfalls and an abundance of wildlife, the Canadian Rockies are an adventure-seeker’s dream. You can ski, bike, raft, fish and dogsled your way through the magnificent scenery, before staying in charming, alpine towns, like Banff, Jasper and Canmore.


Lake Garda, Italy

By Julie Kenny

Julie Kenny snapped this gorgeous pic from the top of Lake Garda, in Riva. We love the sparkling reflection of the sun on the water and it’s certainly enough inspiration to make us want to book a trip to one of Italy’s top tourist spots.   It’s a destination that’s attracted artists, poets and celebrities for its picturesque, lakeside scenery. Surrounded by the three regions of Lombardy, Trentino Alto-Adige and the Veneto, here you can vineyard-hop, stay in a quaint farmhouse or spa town, enjoy traditional cuisine and basically luxuriate in ‘La Dolce Vita’, on the shores of Italy’s largest lake.

Multnomah Falls, Oregon, USA.

By Brian Jones

The rushing waters of magnificent Multnomah Falls were captured by Brian Jones, on a weekend away in the Portland area of Oregon, exploring the Columbia River Gorge.

The roaring cascade is located a mere 30-minute drive from Portland and is surrounded by romantic Native American lore. The Historic Columbia River Highway is actually peppered with falls, like Horsetail, Ponytail and Bridal Veil. Visit the town of Hood River for ice cream and beer, take in the view from Rowena Crest and do a wine tour around the Gorge.


Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, USA

By Josh Roberts

We all love a splash of romance and in this image, Josh Roberts shows where ‘love marks the spot’ of a proposal at Carmel-by-the-Sea. If you’re looking for your own slice of romantic heaven for a proposal or honeymoon, this might just be the spot for you.

A bohemian haven of celebrated artists and writers, Carmel is a seaside resort dotted with fairy tale cottages, on California’s Monterey Peninsula. With museums, libraries and galleries on a back drop of glistening ocean, it’s little wonder the town breathes inspiration into creative art. There’s shopping, wine tasting, spas, hiking and water sports, but you might want to simply sit back with your easel and paintbrush to capture the delightful scenes awaiting discovery.
