What an incredible set of photographs. This is one out of twenty-five photos selected by Alan Taylor for The Big Picture, "a photo blog for the Boston Globe/boston.com."
National Geographic's International Photography Contest 2009
National Geographic's International Photography Contest attracts thousands of entries from photographers of all skill levels around the world every year. While this year's entry deadline has passed, there is still time to view and vote for your favorites in the Viewer's Choice competition. National Geographic was kind enough to let me choose a few of their entries from 2009 for display here on The Big Picture. Collected below are 25 images from the three categories of People, Places and Nature. Captions were written by the individual photographers. (25 photos total)
