28 Stunning Entries From National Geographic’s Photo Contest.
National Geographic Magazine’s annual photo contest has ended. The winners will be announced in December. There’s no doubt the judges will have a tough time this year with all of the beautiful photos that were submitted. In the meantime, here’s a handful of our favorites along with captions written by the photographers.
#1. “A great moment with a whale shark at the Silver Banks, North of the Dominican Republic.”
#2. “Onno, a teenage girl from the Arbore tribe in Omo Valley in Ethiopia. Onno, like other women of the Arbore tribe, enjoys decorating herself with hundreds of beads, which she believes makes her more attractive. Her hair is cut short, which is a symbol of virginity. Soon Onno will marry and as part of the wedding process she will have to be circumcised. This process will be done by her mother and like all Arbore women she will have to follow the tradition.”
#3. “One evening, driving our car on the E17, we came out of a tunnel near Antwerp, Belgium, and were suddenly confronted with this… sky? As I was the passenger, I managed to take a few pictures trough the front window. We felt like driving under an upside see of waves. It had a beautiful dampened light and the world suddenly looked very different. A sense of unknown danger was also present. We had no rain or storm and made it safely home. Other parts of the country that evening were not that lucky.”
#4. “I shot this after a heavy rain storm in Port Moody, British Columbia. Along the path was this bracket fungus stuck to an old recently fallen tree. The light was filtering down on this and it really caught my eye.”
