Travel Photo Awards
The winners of the international Travel Photographer of the Year 2009 awards have been announced. The exhibition of winning photos and best-of-the-rest opens on 29 January at Adventure Travel Live in the Royal Horticultural Halls, London, and continues until 31 January 2010. Only three days! In the meantime, click the title link for a slide show of some of the outstanding photos that will be on display, including great shots of polar bears and cute penguins. The overall winner was G.M.B. Akash with a shot taken on top of a moving train in Bangladesh, but his photo makes my eyes go funny; so here's Jonathan Allen's atmospheric photo of Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, a worthy winner of the First Shot category.
