Most promising underwater photographer of the year – winner. 

Orca Pod by Nicholai Georgiou (UK). 

Location: Tromsø, Norway

Georgiou got this shot during a winter sunset, with the water down to just 5C. As an envious judge pointed out, “Most underwater photographers would be happy to get a shot of a single killer whale, but Nicholai had the composure not to panic and time the shot perfectly as a pod of killer whales passed by heading into the setting sun. I’m jealous.”

Nine Maidens Stone Circle, Devon, England

This stone circle is located near the village of Belstone which is on the edge of Dartmoor National Park’s north moor. The nine standing stones surround a Bronze Age burial site. Legend states that a group of nine young ladies were discovered dancing on a Sunday and thus turned to stone.
