Four silhouettes are captured within a huge full moon, riding down the mountain. It’s at once a tiny bit spooky, a little comical and totally striking – not to mention phenomenally well timed.
Taken by Yhabril Moro in the Spanish Pyrenees, this snap is one of 20 winners of the 2022 CVCEPhoto awards, a competition organised by the Club Vasco de Camping Elkartea, a mountaineering club based in San Sebastián, Spain. The idea of the contest is to use photography to promote mountain activities, from freeclimbing and skiing to kayaking and mountain-biking.
The awards ceremony for 2022’s CVCEPhoto awards will be held in San Sebastián on May 28 and you can check out the full list of winners here. But in the meantime, we’ve rounded up a few of our fave winners, including...
