First Place Winner: Myriam T. from Martinique ($250 USD Gift Card)
A note from Myriam on the photo: "In the south of Martinique (a French island in the Caribbean), in my hometown of Diamant: "Morne Larcher" (Larcher Mountain) represents one of the highest attractions with the Diamond Rock (Rocher du Diamant). It represents the most important part of the famous "lying woman" since it draws the face and body of a woman. The top of the mountain highlights the chin of this famous woman, her chest and her folded legs heading to the sea. With its 477 meters, Morne Larcher is an inactive volcano that dominates the diamond. Sports lovers appreciate this magnificent hiking, count 2 to 3 hours."
Runner Up: Musiru M. from the Maldives ($50 USD Gift Card)
A note from Musiru in the Maldives: "My world is in a thousand little islands scattered around in the Indian Ocean. 26 atolls made up with little chained islands that have the most beautiful white sandy beaches, blue lagoons and an extensive reef which is home for the most breathtaking fishes. It justifies the title 'Paradise on Earth'."

We went for a walk in the desert with our pony"Keshet". I'm Swedish/French and currently live in Israel. Israel is a very small country but with a very big variation in the landscape. In the winter you ski in the north and swim in the south and it's only a few hundred km appart. You have forests, plains, mountains, 3 different desserts, 3 seas - the Red Sea, Dead Sea and Mediterranean, and the Nazareth lake."
