Colorful Landscapes Technique Winner:
This photo was taken at the end of February 2018 in Svolvær, Lofoten (Norway).
That night we went exploring outside the town to spot and capture the Northern Lights on camera. When we came back to our cottage and got ready for bed, suddenly the Northern Lights came back much brighter than before. Annick quickly ran outside with her camera and tripod, in her pajamas, a thick coat and a hat of course because it was well below zero!

Colorful Landscapes Creative Winner:
A lonely canoe at the most beautiful lake of Canadian Rockies - Lake Emerald. Located in the very heart of Yoho National park in Canada, it always grants us with gorgeous, sometimes surreal views. Autumn is Evgeny's favorite time to photograph when the lake is covered by thick a thick blanket of fog. When sunrise comes around the first sunbeams can create the most stunning images, turning our reality into something magical and serene. It is so quiet there you can hear a pin splash into the water. A small and cozy old-style lodge also contributes to the pleasure of being there. You can sit in absolute silence in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine, or standing at the deck above its waters, enjoying the moment.
