a description veinJenny said:

I traveled to Xinjiang last year and took this photo in Dushanzi Grand Canyon, a geological wonder. For tens of millions of years, the melting of the ice in the Tianshan Glacier opened the vast Gubi Fund like a Hammer, and formed this landscape under the movement of the earth’s crust and the erosion of wind and rain. The “vein” was stitched up with 40 photos. I operated my drone to capture these aerial photos at a 90 degree angle at 40 appropriate points (5 rows and 8 columns) of the valley in order to get a full aerial view of the valley. Nature is an artist, and it reminds me of an abstract painting.”

Two more Jinyi photos won the Open category: purple world And the rainbow canyon. Just like the overall winner, it was also taken in China.

Last but not least, Judith Kohn from Germany won the coordinator award for her entry Bernese Oberland. Judith said of her photo:

The Alps in the Bernese Oberland. She is known among wildlife photographers as her hubby. There lives a larger colony, which is accustomed to many walkers and shows a little shyness. So I followed the caribou’s invitation to the Niederhorn. The landscape of the area is also not uninteresting (the Mönch Eiger Jungfrau trio is the direct opposite), but it is not a photography hot spot. So, for weight reasons, I set out early in the morning for my shooting tour armed only with a camera, telephoto lens, and a few spare batteries. Landscape photography is not planned. In the neighboring Burgfeldt Stand, the view was open to the northeast, where the hills and valleys crumbled in a mist in the bright sunlight. The perspective that creates spatial depth, fortunately for me, can only be effectively photographed with a telephoto lens. So I unexpectedly came across a great landscape photo on my wildlife tour.”
