I was on a job in WA and had been doing a lot of aerial work whilst on a boat in the Kimberley. When I got back to the mainland I had been scheduled a joy flight out to the oyster farms and luckily scored the same pilot. Since we already knew each other, Guy suggested flying over a field that usually has wild horses. As we approached everything came together nicely, they ran wild through the marsh and I snapped away. Not my sharpest shot but this photo is everything I love about photography. (© Lauren Bath / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)

This wave is situated right near the CBD of Sydney. Some describe it as the most dangerous wave in Australia, due to it breaking on barnacle covered rocks only a few feet deep and only ten metres from the cliff face. If you fall off you could find yourself in a life and death situation. This photo was taken 300 feet directly above the wave from a helicopter, just as the surfer is pulling under the lip of the barrel. (© Ian Bird / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)

Elephants, Cape buffalo, hippopotamus, impala, zebras, lechwe and wildebeest are just some of the large mammals can be found in abundance, drawing in predators such as lions, leopards, African wild dog, cheetah and crocodile.

A little treat to myself for working and studying hard, I booked a beautiful Hamilton Island adventure which took me to the Great Barrier Reef. Forever seeking the perfect shot I couldn’t resist seeing this beautiful natural wonder by air. My greatest wish is that we protect the reef from decay so that many generations to come will continue to marvel at its beauty. (© Ingrid Teda / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)
