“National Geographic has just announced the results of the prestigious 2016 Nature Photographer of the Year contest. As you can see from the pictures below, the judges had a hard time choosing the very best image but the first place along with a 10-day trip for two to the Galapagos Islands, two 15-minute image portfolio reviews with organisation’s photo editors and a $2,500 cash prize went to Greg Lecoeur for a superb shot of predators hunting sardines underwater.” – Giedrė
If you thought drones were only used by annoying teenagers to torment their neighbors you are so wrong.
Photographers around the world are using the devices to capture nature images, and the results are stunning.
A site called SkyPixel, which allows aerial photographers to share their work, has announced its “Best of 2015” list. This collection of drone photos shows the mind-boggling beauty of our planet, and it’s a must-see for nature-lovers.
I’ve included a pair of photos from the “Best of 2015” list here, and you can enjoy the full gallery via the link below (courtesy of Mother Nature Network).
Two of my favorite things combined – nature and stunning photography.
Thanks to Kate Groetzinger and Quartz for curating beautiful images (link below).
“Every year, the best photos taken in rivers and oceans around the world are honored in the UK’s Underwater Photographer of the Year contest. Awards span eight categories that reward photographers’ ability to capture everything from intimate portraits of marine wildlife to vast seascapes.” – Kate Groetzinger
