7. Nemo In The House (Remarkable Award In Animals In Their Environment Category)
The clownfish is a magnificent creature that uses the anemone as protection. The clownfish is found in warm waters like the Indian Ocean, Great Barrier Reef, and the Indo-Malaysian region. They enjoy shallow seas and a protective reef. The photographer caught one emerging from the anemone, and it is a beautiful pop of color against the white background. For any other human or animal, the anemone stings, but for the clownfish, it cleans them.
8. Toy Houses, Russia (1st Place In Architecture & Urban Spaces Category)
The photographer was able to take a shot of Russian dachas near the city of Arkhangelsk. The white snow and the color of houses give off an intense contrast. It almost looks like a painting because of the unique colors and the number of homes in a small area. Everything is so symmetrical and colorful, which makes it such a unique landscape. Arkhangelsk is located in the northwestern region of Russia and sits near an exit to the White Sea.
9. The Wave, Antarctica Waters (3rd Place In Journeys And Adventures Category)
The photographer was able to capture this photo in the Drake Passage between Antarctica and Cape Horn. This 12-meter wave pounded the boat's forecastle, and thankfully, the photographer was ready with a camera. The dominant wave crashed against the ship, and, incredibly, the power of the ocean did not capsize the boat. The researchers on the ship are used to stormy seas, so this was a typical day on the job.
