“Eruption of Gunung Rinjani” by Aaron Lim Boon Teck
Singaporean photographer Aaron Lim Boon Teck has taken the Grand Prize in National Geographic’s annual photo contest.
He trumped more than 16,000 other entries with his picture of trekkers watching Gunung Rinjani, a volcano on the island of Lombok, Indonesia, erupt as the sun rose at the break of dawn.
Freelance photographer and contest judge Joel Sartore said on National Geographic, “This image best represented the craft of photography. Not only is the light subtle and beautiful, and not only is it a lovely scene, but there’s a volcanic eruption going on in the background.”
National Geographic magazine senior photo editor and judge Sadie Quarrier added that combining multiple images into one stitched image “gives us a wide, powerful, and unique view.”
Photo galleries of all the winners and finalists in the contest’s three categories — Nature, People and Places – are online at the magazine’s website now.
