This photograph by Nicolas Reusens Boden, Sweden, is one of the early entries in the Nature and Wildlife category of Sony’s 2014 World Photography Awards. Photographers have about a month left to submit their best work.
In this seventh year of the international competition, the overall winner will receive $25,000 and winners of each of 15 categories will receive Sony equipment. Winners will be announced April 20 in London.
A gallery of the submissions to date is available on the World Photography Organisation’s website, although it is not set up for easy viewing. One must look through hundreds of thumbnails and then click on them to see larger images.
The images shown here (click for larger views) and several others are featured on The Weather Channel website in a more viewer-friendly slideshow format.
