“My city – a least for now is Vancouver. I think this shot captures how the beach life gets intertwined with city life – and the two aren’t far removed. The sea is never from from your doorstep in Vancouver and it’s always calling.” – Leigh

The Essence of Prague captured by Dana Newman of Wanted Adventure

“Prague is an enchanting city known for its charming cobblestone walkways, warm cafes, quaint bridges, and sky-piercing spires. This photo of the moon coming up over the Charles Bridge (on the right) and the Church of St. Francis dome (towards the left) was taken as dusk melted into night. It wholly captures the very essence of Prague’s utter romanticism.” – Dana

The Essence of Minneapolis captured by Evan of Sensible Travel Advice

“Minneapolis, Minnesota has gotten a bad reputation as a city with bone-chilling winters.  While winters can be rough, often lost is how great the city is the rest the year.  In this picture, taken from the Stone Arch Bridge, you can see the Mississippi River (the headwaters are in Minnesota), ancient flour mill ruins (the industry the built the city), and modern skyscrapers (which power today’s city).” – Evan
