Beautiful autumn motorcycle ride

Can't resist the urge to get on the road! Where are these riders heading to?


The winner is…No One. I really hate it when this happens, but know you get introduced to a new beautiful spot in the world. This photo was taken on the Skyline Drive (the blue ridge parkway) just outside Luray, Virginia.

Thanks again to Chip for his challenging but beautiful picture. Here is what makes this skyline so special to Chip:

“Shot this during my current bicycle tour around the United States. After a thousand miles or more of flat lands through the great plains, it felt good to be back on real hills again. Riding the parkway in the autumn was one of my big goals this year, and it was great to hit it during the peak of Fall colors. While the road through this popular destination was choked with RVs on the weekends, mid-week it was just me, the motorcycle touring folks, and day after day of perfect cycling.

No prize to give out this week. Good luck next week and get your memories (or search engines) warmed up.

Welcome to Travel Photo Contest Friday, wow that’s a mouthful! If you’re new or never bothered to actually read what I write, each week I post a beautiful picture (at least I think so) from my travels (and sometimes from a featured guest…see below for details on how to guest post) and you guess where it is.

This week’s photo comes from Chip over at Big Rhino Dog. Chip has a great blog where he posts amazing photos of the day as he travels on his bike with no end date in site. If you ever wondered what your life would be like if others got to see it all, then check out Chip. He’s learned to make the most of life by sharing it with others and making sure he doesn’t waste one second on something not worth his time.

The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country and Place Name) will win a link back to their blog with the anchor text of their choice in this post (keep it clean and relevant).

Leave your guess and recent post in the comment section below. Yeah, its a bit harder this week, but I know you are up to the challenge. There is a winner for last weeks contest Desolate Beauty, but I’m traveling in Jordan and have run out of time to post. Check back on Monday and all will be revealed.

I will also stumble the latest post of anyone who leaves a comment even if the winner has already been picked (up until next Thursday). Chip will also join in on the stumble love as well! Yes, the prizes heavily favor the blogging and travel geeks amongst us. If you don’t have a website, then leave your favorite website or better yet a charity that deserves attention. Yes, I also get behind on my stumbling responsibilities, but they always get down and I love to stumble at once.

Good luck!

Guesses aside, all comments are welcome!

Be a Guest Photographer

If you’re looking to help increase the visibility of your blog, drive more traffic, or just share your pretty pictures then why not be a guest photographer for Photo Contest Friday on Todd’s Wanderings! We have guest posters for the  next 4 weeks and filling up fast, so get in touch soon.

If you’re interested in having your photograph featured then send me an e-mail through my Todd’s Wanderings Contact Page with the Subject line: Photo Contest Friday. Don’t forget to tell me which site you’re coming from and I’ll be in touch and explain how to send the photo. Keep in mind that your photo should be awesome!

The photograph should be your own and should have a few small clues in the photo to help the reader out if they’ve never been there (no, I don’t follow this last rule myself all the time…but it’s my website). I’ll link to your page and talk you up as the guest poster. I can be very flattering when I want to be.

Oh, and it goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway. You should be an independent travel blogger. You big companies have more than enough SEO stored up to get you through the winter.
