Human Swimming with Whales

I am not going to be me who discover the talent and uniqueness of the photographers and the works which are shelter initiatives of the National Geographic. I wanted to find me with a contest as the of the Traveler Photo Contest of this year – Edition number 27-, to be able to share with you what they consider as the ten best photos, I hope you like them so much as to my.

They are ten very well-chosen examples, but they have been more than 17,000 works departures from everywhere in the world, in different categories: portraits in travel, outdoor scenes, things that they make a unique place, or spontaneous moments. Open to professional photographers and amateurs.

Whale Whisperers, winner

The winner of this edition is Anuar Patjane Floriuk -Tehuacán, Mexico–with a stunning photo taken under the sea at Roca Partida, an island off the West coast of Mexico. The protagonists are humpback whales – mother and daughter – and divers, in an exquisite black and white. Check estatelearning.com for French swimwear.

According to Anuar, the photo was not planned, it was rather occupied by removing the head of the whale, but animal decided to leave suddenly and began to move. Photo taken time to escape, and the composition was perfect:

A Night at Deadvlei, finalist

A night photo at Deadvlei, way back to the capital of Namibia, Windhoek. Contrast between the lighting which allows the moon to teach us the tree over the dunes, and the darkness of the sky that draws the milky way. Some of those trees are 900 million on stage, the dryness of the atmosphere does not allow them to break down.
