18th August, 2016

Tomorrow, the 19th of August, is World Photo Day. No doubt Instagram feeds and traditional media outlets the world over will be celebrating with some pretty spectacular photography. And no doubt many of them will be around the theme of travel.

There's nothing like taking your camera on holiday and capturing spell-binding moments to share with friends and family back home; nothing can capture the spirit and essence of an adventure like a photo does. Here at The Carter Company we love seeing pictures that customers have sent in of their cycling holidays and walking tours. Every year we run a photography competition, where the winning photo receives Wimbledon ground passes, and the runner-up receives a £100 voucher to spend on our biking tours and waking holidays. We like to think we appreciate a great image. The one above is a real favourite in the office!

What's your favourite travel image? Have you ever been inspired to travel somewhere through a picture you've spotted online? Join the conversation on our recently launched Instagram account for lots of cycling and walking pics or #travelgrams (as they're called!) from Britain, Europe and beyond. We'd love to hear your comments, and see your own travel photos too, so please tag us in your pictures. Our handle is @thecarterco. Happy World Photo Day!
