Postcards from all over the World

Updated on May 7, 2015

My Photos available as Postcards from Zazzle.com

I have been travelling and taking photographs for decades, since long before the advent on digital photography and have visited many of the world's most famous tourist sites and some rather many obscure and remote ones too. These. some of my photographs have been published in a variety of different forms (souvenirs and even on clothing) but perhaps the most accessible form is as a postcard.

After many years of travel photography here is a selection of my photographs from all over the world in the form of postcards, available from Zazzle.com: href="http://www.zazzle.com/andypo These are mostly travel and wildlife photographs, from architecture and ancient ruins to rain forests and jungles and the open plains of Africa.

Mount Rushmoore - An Impressive Monument in South Dakota

The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a huge, imposing sculpture featuring 60-foot heads of US presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. It was carved into Mount Rushmore by Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, starting in 1927 with the faces completed by 1939. Gutzon Borglum died 1941 and construction finished shortly afterwards, by his son. It is located near Keystone, South Dakota. The U.S. National Park Service took over the management of memorial in 1933, while still being completed and is one of the most iconic and popular tourist destinations in America.

The Arches National Park, USA

Beautiful Sandstone Rock Formations

The USA has many of the best national parks in the world and the Arches National Park in eastern Utah is spectacular, with over 2000 sandstone arches and the most famous "Delicate Arch". The park is near Moab, Utah and was originally created as a National Monument in 1929 and was upgraded to a National Park in 1971.

Vancouver Island, Canada - British Columbia, Canada

Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada has a lot of spectacular scenery and interesting wildlife and is easily accessible from Vancouver, on the mainland (also named after George Vancouver, a British Royal Navy officer who explored the region between 1791 and 1794) and Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, which is located on the island.

Postcards from China

The Great Wall of China and Beijing

Asian Postcards

Beijing and its surroundings have some wonderful scenery and architecture. There is a lot to see actually in Beijing, including sections of the Great Wall, but venturing a short distance out of the city will provide even better views and fewer tourists.

Lake Windermere

Lake Windermere is the most famous of the lakes in the Lake District of Northern England, partly because during the Victorian era, when trains allowed greater mobility, most people arrived by train at Windermere. It remains one of the main destinations in the area, providing abundant accommodation, restaurants, boat trips across the lake and unspoilt scenery.

The Sphinx and the Pyramids in Giza, Egypt

The Sphinx and the Pyramids in Giza, Cairo, Egypt may be one of the most famous images, but they do not disappoint.

South American Postcards

Old Havana, Cuba

Visiting Havana in Cuba is like traveling back in time. Old American cars from the 1950 prowl the streets and the old colonial architecture is impressive (if often in need of Some repair)

For more Cuban photos please visit my Gallery: http://www.zazzle.com/andypo ...

Komodo Dragon Postcards

Giant Lizards from the Indonesian Archipelago

This is one of my favourite photographs. It was taken in the wild on Komodo Island. Those two dragons really were heading straight for me and it wasn't a long telephoto lens, although they had just eaten, so probably weren't too interested in me.
