Our winners today 🍍


🥇 Canadian Rockies: Chasing waterfalls, unicorns and rainbows in Jasper National Park by @ladybug146

" We didn't have a specific agenda, we just went wherever the wheels of the truck and our feet took us. Next we were looking for a view of the endless chain, stopped for a picture and noticed we were at the trailhead for Stanley Falls and it seemed to be only a few km hike that took a little over an hour to complete. Doesn't seem like a busy hike, bring bear spray in case but I didn't really see any evidence of bears or much food for them so it might be ok without."

🥈 Dark times on the road: The killing fields of Greece by @koenau

" The monument to the dead of Karakolithos, created by the sculptor Aggelika Korovesi, is a particularly impressive reminder of the suffering of the people at that time, including that of the village of Distomo very close by. There, at the foot of the Parnassus Mountains, the occupiers raged particularly badly. The gaps that can be seen behind the angry defender with the rifle are supposed to show how the victims are missing to this day."

🥉 Lower Largo And Alexander Selkirk The Real Robinson Crusoe - Fife Coast - East Scotland. by @celticheartbeat

" Today I took a walk around the picturesque town of Lower Largo on the Fife coast here in Scotland.This town is the birthplace of a mariner named Alexander Selkirk who was the inspiration for Daniel Defoe's story Robinson Crusoe. In 1707 Alexander Selkirk was marooned on an Island in the South Pacific where he survived for 4 years and 4 months.The Island was part of the Juan Fernandez archipelago of the coast of Chile."
