    “The Power of Nature” by Sergio Tapiro Velasco, the grand prize winner and winner in the “Nature” category of the 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest.
    “A powerful eruption illuminates the slopes of Mexico’s Colima Volcano on December 13, 2015. I was in the town of Comala when I suddenly saw incandescence above the volcano's crater and started shooting. Seconds later, a powerful volcanic explosion expelled a cloud of ash particles and a massive lightning bolt illuminated most of the dark scene. It was one of the most exciting moments of my life,” Velasco commented his breathtaking image.

    Explore the prize-winning photos of the 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest in Sputnik’s photo gallery. These incredible images will inspire you to see more of our magnificent planet.

    National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year is an annual competition among photographers of all levels designed to elevate new talent and showcase their captivating images on Nat Geo's influential platforms.

    Photography has been a core component of National Geographic's storytelling since the 1890s. National Geographic Travel has continued this tradition, drawing on the best photographers to take readers around the world to places they might not have been themselves.

    Besides the honorable title of the National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year, this year's grand prize winner selected overall from the three categories of the contest received a 10-day trip for two to the Galápagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions.
