Photos of the Week: Long Range

Photos of the Week: Long Range Photo

Expensive hotels come in two distinct flavors: the borderline palaces which pop up in major cities, and the scenic hideaways of rural villages like Aspen. The hideaways are more likely to have staggering views, and they're often the preference of travelers escaping the rat race. They're also quite popular with travel photographers, not least because nobody minds taking photos from the comfort of a balcony. At IgoUgo, we love a good view, so this week, if you'll bear with us, we'd like to celebrate a couple of wide-ranging shots. Our Photos of the Week are peering off in the distance.

The snow-covered Pico del Teide is the tallest mountain in Tenerife. When Drever spent a night at the Quinta Park Suites hotel, he snapped a gorgeous photo of the peak in all its splendor. We hope Kiliminjaro is next on your itinerary, Drever.

Fjords are one of those things you really can’t explain without pictures. When Koentje3000 paid a visit to Norway, he managed to get a picture you could find in a decent dictionary. We doubt we need to warn you not to look down, Koentje.
