The Best Travel Photos Of 2016 Are An Adventurer's Dream

Post by Guest on Thu Mar 03, 2016 9:01 pm

When packing your bags for an epic adventure, a camera is the most vital accessory.
Don't believe us? Take a look at the Travel category for the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards.
Though the overall winners of the competition won't be announced until April 21, the recently announced shortlist includes gorgeous photos from categories like Architecture, Nature & Wildlife, Candid and more. But no category captures thecombination of adventure, natural beauty and culture quite like Travel.
Below, a selection of travel images with captions from photographers who submitted their work to the Sony World Photography Awards. They show a world just begging to be explored.


  • West Bengal, India

    Abhijit Banerjee
    "Every year in the month of January few lacks of devotee come to Gangasagar fair in West Bengal. It is the second largest fair of India. Captured the devotees while they worship sun just after their bath."

  • Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

    Adriano Neves
    "The 'Cuernos del Paine' mountain range reflected over the glacial waters of lake Nordenskj in 'Torres del Paine' National Park... Or perhaps a vision of Eden's Gardens?"

  • Bryce Amphitheater, Utah

    Anasuya Mandal
    "The hoodoos of the Bryce Amphitheater glistened as the golden rays of the sun illuminated them, while the vista took my breath away."

  • Vesturhorn, Iceland

    Nick Kontostavlakis
    "Iceland is one of my favorite destinations,for several reasons. The most important is the unique atmosphere and the strong feelings caused by the beautiful landscape which constantly changes as you drive around the country."

  • West Pier, England

    Ralph Graef
    "Brighton, West Pier."

  • Bernese Alps, Switzerland

    Simone Cmoon
    "Two thousand, one hundred and seventy-six meters above the sea. Berner Alpen, Switzerland. It was a very hard and dangerous way to this beautiful place: Climbing and walking up and down mountains. One time I had to take my dog into my backpack to climb down a wall. We were 36 hours on the road with heavy backpacks, only two hours sleep, I'm very happy that we arrived back alive (first time we did such a crazy spontaneously trip) and I am happy that I have seen this wonderful nature."

  • Sanur Beach, Indonesia

    Tan Jia Yi
    "I fell in love with photography five years ago, initially shooting portraiture and landscape until I discovered the minimalism art/ long exposure technique 3 years ago. The distilled, condensed quality of sourcing the art form into the chosen frame, stripped off the nonessential bring to focus a beauty that's mysterious, abstract, contemplative and otherworldly. This shot was taken in Bali before the daybreak. In the face of such palpable stillness, it's the mystery of silence that speaks to our innermost self..."

  • South China

    Tugo Cheng
    "A fisherman is farming the sea in between the bamboo rods constructed for aquaculture off the coast in southern China."

  • U Bein Bridge, Myanmar

    Lesley Hall
    "Taken at the U Bein Bridge in Myanmar, taken from a boat on Taungthaman Lake."

  • Sorško polje, Slovenia

1.) Follow @Netflix on Instagram.
2.) Tag three of your best photos with #grammasters3 by March 6th.

Wow. Need a good camera though.

I used to buy national geographical magazine (is it still around?) and cut out pics I liked and 'frame' them (border them with black tape lol) in my bedroom.

There were some beautiful ones of ice in the sunset.

Do they still see the actual magazines though? Sorry that's what I meant. I've seen the online site.

I agree, and to be honest I did not know they were still producing the magazine itself, but thought they were just online now

I'll have a look next time I go to the newsagents, or supermarket.
Might even make a new collage.
