Best travel photos of the month


By now you must have realized that The Golden Scope explores the strange, fascinating and wonderful by publishing photos that show the beauty of the world.

In each article we feature about 60 to 100 pictures so we can give you the chance to actually “travel” to the places described and see for your self how unique and beautiful they are.


Because we—at The Golden Scope—are big fans of travel photography, we decided to create a monthly column focusing on the most stunning, incredible and fascinating shots taken anywhere in world.

In other words, we have been monitoring the web for over 30 days collecting what we believe are the most beautiful travel photography of the month.


Following are the pictures we chose; however, if you believe that there are better photos out there, please feel free to let us know and we will include your shots too!
