Top 10 Travel Photos from World In My Lens
Top 10 Travel Photos from World In my Lens
Having spent 10 years on traveling, I visited almost 100 countries so far. I was in the major places of Europe and Asia. I was amazed by Sri Lanka, Armenia, Santorini, and New York. Now, on my bucket list I have South America and Africa (if my wife finally agrees). I also figured out a way to run my digital agency and a startup at the same time. But traveling and photography has always been my biggest passions.
So here comes my 10 favorite Travel Photos I took on my way to conquer the world.
Myanmar – Local Monks
I met this group coming back from Bagan, a place usually associated with balloons flying over the ruins. And even though the monuments there are incredibly amazing, and photos are wonderful, I brought back another favorite Travel Photo of mine from Myanmar. Young Buddhist monks. They train from as young as seven years old. They grow up, eat, prey, become educated, play and live together – just like a family. View more great photos from Bagan.back to menu ↑
Hong Kong – City Views
I loved that place mostly because of the fact, that it looks just like a Western city, but being there you can feel a totally different atmosphere of the city. I must admit that’s the reason I love Asia and come back there. It was also the photo with which I started to cooperate with a big hotel chain – and it opened a way for my very first photography assignment. Taking this photo, I really enjoyed the colors there. Hong Kong takes a great care of that, calling it Symphony of Lights in Harbour – a daily show performed by the towers of Central district.back to menu ↑
Dubai – Burj Khalifa
It’s actually an interesting story. In Dubai I met with a client, after I didn’t manage to get to Saudi Arabia. I was really amazed by this place, just as everyone who has been there – the fact that just a couple of decades ago there was a desert, not skyscrapers, is simply astonishing. This travel photo is a tribute to human labor, creativity and artistic sense. All build in 40 degrees heat. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure in the world, standing at 829.8 m, which I think explains the need to use a fish eye lens to have it all in one shot. Photographing this type of architecture is a real challenge, which I hope, I managed to do. 🙂

Cambodia – Siem Reap Sunset
The charm of Cambodia will never leave me, no matter how many more countries will visit. The amazing monuments, temples and buildings are one of a kind, you just can’t find anything similar in the world. Taking this Travel Photo I wanted to capture the unique view and the atmosphere of that place. When I look at it, I can almost feel the smell of fresh air and flowers blossoming around me. It’s also one of my wife’s favorite places. I can recommend Cambodia to all hike-lovers and temple-lovers, but there’s much more than meets the eye.

Italy – Bergamo
Looks like heaven, doesn’t it? I was on the plane when I took this photo. Just when I saw those clouds, sitting calmly on the tops of the mountains I couldn’t be more happy to shoot it. The weather was just perfect on that day. Even the other passengers, who often travel there, said the view was very surprising and unique. I even talked with an American who said that even though he was in various different countries in his life, that mountains will always remain his favorite. And I must admit, that from that day on, they are my favorite as well. View more Italy Travel Photosback to menu ↑
Sri Lanka – Nuwara Eliya
Nuwara Eliya in Central Province of Sri Lanka welcomed me with one of most friendly people I have ever met. Those ladies who pick up tea are so lovely I could stand there all day with them, talking and taking photos. The island is small but very diverse. I really enjoyed spending time with the locals there, watching the life of ordinary citizens and hearing their stories. More Travel Photos from Sri Lankaback to menu ↑
Armenia – Little Armenian model
I must admit I was really surprised of how beautiful this country is. Its history also amazed me. And for this little girl – It was just a perfect place and perfect timing. Even if her nose is a bit dirty, she was a cute, little model, standing there and waiting for a couple of shots. You can’t help but fall in love with her. Armenian Collectionback to menu ↑
Peru – Machu Picchu
This is one of my top of the top favorites. And yes, it was a long trip, but it was all worth it to have such a shot. The view was so breathtaking, it took me a few minutes to admire it, and I don’t react like that often. The weather we had was amazing, it just couldn’t be better. Of course it was packed with tourists but still it was one of the most wonderful places I’ve ever been to. Machu Picchu Travel Photosback to menu ↑
Oman – The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque
It doesn’t happen often, when I’m that impressed by the building, as I was in Muscat. The Grand Mosque is amazing and breathtaking, it just shines with the luxury and sublimity. Really one of its kind. It’s also one of the biggest buildings I’ve shot on my journeys, so I took a several pics to see what looks best. This one is my favorite because I think it really shows how enormous and majestic the Mosque is. And those colors – the lights, the beige of the walls and the blue sky match perfectly.

Australia – Queensland Sunrise
Visiting Australia was unforgettable. Not because of the ticket I got, because my wife was sleeping at the back, while I drove it. And not because of some deadly animal on our way (well, there must have been some, but fortunately it didn’t show itself). It’s just the completely different way of living for me as a European. The pace of life is slower, and people are always nice. Wherever you go, you can see an incredible view, a perfect shot – Mother Nature was really generous for Australia. And the food is really great!
