2016 Nat Geo Travel Photography Winners

Posted on July 12 2016

National Geographic just announced the winners of their 2016 Travel Photographer of the Year contest. With categories including people, nature and cities, we get to see some truly magnificent captures from photographers all around the world. The grand prize winner this year is Anthony Lau thanks to his image entitled Winter Horseman (above). Says Lau, "the winter in Inner Mongolia is very unforgiving. At a freezing temperature of minus 20 and lower, with a constant breeze of snow from all directions, it was pretty hard to convince myself to get out of the car and take photos. I saw horsemen showing off their skills and commanding the steed from a distance. I quickly grabbed my telephoto lens and captured the moment when one of the horsemen charged out from the morning mist." What an amazing image.
