Wenn Fotografen im Wettbewerb gegeneinander antreten, gewinnen vor allem die Foto-Liebhaber – das trifft zumindest auf den nicht abreißenden Strom wunderschöner Landschaftsbilder zu, die um den ersten Platz im jährlichen National Geographic "Travel Photographer of the Year"-Wettbewerb kämpfen.

Die Redakteure von NatGeo haben für die Kategorie Natur bereits jetzt einige atemberaubende Favoriten zusammengestellt – entschieden ist jedoch noch lange nichts, denn Bilder können noch bis zum 30. Juni 2017 eingereicht werden. Den Gewinner belohnt National Geographic mit einer 10-tägigen Reise auf die Galapagos-Inseln mit National Geographic Expeditions. Wenn es nach uns geht, ist bereits jeder der zehn Fotografen ein Gewinner, denn ihnen gelingt es, durch alltägliche Szenen ganz besondere Geschichten zu erzählen.

Seht euch hier zehn der beeindruckenden Naturfotos an:

Foto und Bildunterschrift: Manish Mamtani / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest A drive to remember Aerial view of the Scenic drive and the beautiful Fall colors of New Hampshire. I used a drone to capture the fall colors that cannot be seen from the road.

Foto und Bildunterschrift: Shane Gross / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest In Your Face Caribbean reef sharks are usually shy so I placed my camera on a rock where I know they frequent and used a remote trigger to click away as they came in and bumped my camera around.

Foto und Bildunterschrift: Takahiro Bessho / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest The Mirror Lake Yogo, called "The lake of Mirror", sometimes reflects everything in front of you.

Foto und Bildunterschrift: Marc Henauer / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest Swallows Cave A freediver swim in the deep of "swallows cave" in Tonga. This cave is settled by more than few thousand fish. They offer you a spectacular ballet when you dive inside. The contrast between the dark of the bottom and the light of the top make bright the fishes like stars.

Foto und Bildunterschrift: Adam Cunningham-White/ National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest Lost in white This photo captures the moment that I, along with 3 other Sami reindeer herders become a little lost while migrating with 350 reindeer. They were rounded up from a section of forest around 30kms south of this point. Our goal was to take them, via rivers, northwards to pastures new using the network of rivers and lakes that flow through Sweden. This was taken on Randijaur lake, Jokkmokk, Sweden

Foto und Bildunterschrift: Hidetoshi Ogata / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest Little Eyewitness "Little Eyewitness" was taken in Jigokudani Monkey Park, Nagano, Japan on December, 2016. On a cold winter's day, monkeys have several ways to keep off the cold. For example, in order to keep them warm, they have a soak in a hot spring, take a bedrock bath or huddle together, etc. While monkeys were huddling together, I approached them with the stealthy footsteps. Then I photographed them from directly above at the moment when a little monkey nestled in mother's arms looked to the camera.

Foto und Bildunterschrift: Hiroki Inoue / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest Morning Cranes I was able to capture the silhouettes of the cranes through the morning fog.
