Showcasing the winners of National Geographic’s Travel Photographer of the Year.
You’ve taken 20 shots off the same landscape for the last 15 minutes, feverously try to make your best mates look like they are having fun, and appear to like each other. Throughout the constant smiles, pouting, peace-signing and eye-closing, you’ve settled on a group shot that everyone is relatively happy with, whacked on a filter and written a seemingly hilarious caption with an inside group joke as a hashtag. Budding photographer in the making hey? But before you expect a call from National Geographic – you might want to place your eyes on their winners of Travel Photographer of the Year, might put your holiday snaps to shame…
