The world around us is a magical place and we are eternally grateful for having such talented photographers bring it to our doorstep. Whether it's capturing the passage of time, animals that would usually be hidden from us, or places that many of us are unlikely to have visited, every week brings new delights in which to lose ourselves. Our opening pic comes courtesy of photographer Valentin Valkov. What a stunning pic Valentin, congratulations to you and to all the other photographers featured in this week's Picks!
