2015 National Geographic Contest – Traveler Photos

The results are in during the current year’s National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest, and the photographs are genuinely uncommon. They were chosen from more than 17,000 worldwide passages in the classifications Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes, Sense of Place and Spontaneous Moments. Anuar Patjane Floriuk won first prize for his submerged shot of jumpers swimming near a humpback whale close Roca Partida, an island off of the western shore of Mexico. The fantastic prize is an eight-day National Geographic Photo Expedition to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal for two.

“The photograph wasn’t arranged,” said Floriuk, from Tehuacán, Puebla, Mexico. “I was taking photographs close to the leader of the whale, and out of the blue she started to swim toward whatever remains of the jumping group. The jumpers gave the whale and her calf space, and I simply clicked exactly when the stream and creation appeared to be correct.
