Just look at that. Who needs paintings or imagination when nature alone can provide something as beautiful as the above snap? And that’s exactly the point of the Natural Landscape Photography Awards, which are designed to celebrate nature photographs at their most realistic and unaltered.

The NLPA has only been running two years, but in that short amount of time it’s still managed to attract mind-boggling photographs from seriously talented photographers all over the world. This year’s edition received over 10,000 submissions from 55 countries, from which the winners were decided by a panel of expert judges. 

You can view all of the winning photographs of the NLPA and find out more here but, in the meantime, here’s a selection of our favourites.
