National Geographic Magazine has opened its annual photo contest, with the deadline for submissions coming up on November 16, 2015. This effect is entirely natural but decidedly surreal as the swirling tannins of the Santa Fe River mix with clear spring water as Lesley Gamble begins her dive at Devil's Ear Spring in North Florida.
A little girl plays in the monument to the victims of the attack of 11M in the Atocha train station in Madrid. We were in Rurutu, French Polynesia, during the humpback whales’ migration from the south. I love the dichotomies of the springs: feeling the freezing embrace of the water on a sweltering summer day, swimming in groundwater but appearing to soar in cottonball clouds, using flippers to fly, hovering where two worlds intersect and illusions abound. The 27th annual National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest is under way, and entries will be accepted for another seven weeks, until June 30, 2015.
The photo is taken near the Andaman Islands while diving with an elephant who likes to swim in the sea. On an expedition at Todos Santos in South Baja California, Mexico I was searching for big predators feeding on sardine baitballs; marlins, sharks or tunas, but instead of it I found this little but very beautiful sea bird, the Hawaiian Petrel.
As technology shrinks the world around us, it becomes more and more difficult to find ourselves truly lost in the outdoors.
The Grand Prize Winner will receive $10,000 and a trip to National Geographic headquarters to participate in its annual photography seminar. The Land of a Thousand Springs, Florida is home to the largest collection of freshwater springs in the world.
I woke up at 4:00, scouting for a nice place, and after 30 minutes drive I reached this field. I located one sitting on a branch in a bright area of the tree with a deep shadow behind it.


I had seen several this particular day but most only stayed visible for a few seconds before disappearing, but this particular fox came out of the woods and just watched me for a few minutes.
I tried to show the patterns using two strobes and pointing in different directions so I could still get the glow of the internal structure.
We were walking close to sunset in a less-traversed area near the Big Daddy dune and came across this seemingly endless waves of wind ripples that was exaggerated by the setting sun.
This is Silver Glen Spring in the Ocala National Forest, a first-magnitude spring nestled in the woods of north central Florida. First prize winner will receive an eight-day photo expedition for two, to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal.
This image was made in very low light conditions during the midnight sun making the atmosphere quite mysterious. The Hilma Hooker is a 200 ft shipwreck 100 ft below the surface in the Caribbean Sea in Bonaire (a famous destination for scubadiving). While I was taking deep breaths on the surface, a lemon shark came to investigate swimming below me. The kind folks at National Geographic were once again kind enough to let me choose among the contest entries so far for display here. The conditions were not favorable, there was so much fog that you couldn't see any of the mountains in the background. Waiting for the right moment to capture its beauty in the fullest was the name of the game. THANK YOU to all those countries and individuals involved in keeping places like these intact!
The spring discharges about 65 million gallons of water per day from the underlying aquifer.


National Geographic was once again kind enough to allow me to share some of the early entries with you here, gathered from four categories: Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes, Sense of Place, and Spontaneous Moments.
Luckily I was able to capture the moment it submerged its head to feed on the tiny food source. First of all I saw a star-filled sky, then early in the morning about 5am, this scene I had never seen before appeared through the window. I got closer and put camouflage netting over me and waited their for two hours straight, then they came out one by one and i started to shoot with my camera. A few minutes later the bird partially spread its wings, displaying its glorious colors, and I was fortunate enough to be there to capture it. This cub started to clean himself, and I got this picture while he was looking straight at the camera! For anybody who is prepared, careful, and respectful of nature, the reward is one of the most breathtaking views in all of Yosemite, in my opinion. I had plenty of time to explore the location and enjoy the place and at the end the magic happened. Such a calm and silent morning, I walked away from people and took this photo in absolute silence.
