OVER THE EDGE: Our tour guide, Jason Edwards, took this photo of my husband and I at the Grand Canyon, Arizona. I must have been getting sick of him after travelling together for a month!

As much as we love to mock travel photo clichés... we're all guilty of them. Whether a selfie, you walking down Abbey Road or holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa - we asked to see all your cliché masterpieces.

We received hundreds of entries! From a shortlist of about 10 images, Group Digital and Visual Editor, Mark Stevens chose Kirstin Foote's image.

"This picture is hilarious," Stevens said. "We all know international travel, while fantastic, can also be a little stressful. And I'm sure there's been the odd time my wife's been tempted to kick me into a canyon..."

Kirsten said: "My husband Chris and I were staying in Las Vegas at the end of a month long trip around the States. We took a day trip to the Grand Canyon and it was apparently the coldest day our guide had ever experienced - it didn't go above -8 degrees! To distract us from the cold, our guide had us pose for photo shoots at the different stop off points around the Canyon. Chris actually hated getting near the edge of the Canyon so we're lucky this photo even happened!"

Hamilton-based Kirsten works in the printing industry and mentioned she really needed a new camera for a couple of upcoming trips.

She'll be well-equipped with world's smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR - the Canon EOS 100D so she can keep those clichéd shots coming!
