The winning shots of the National Geographic Photo Contest 2012 are awe-inspiring. We especially like the one of the Matterhorn in the Pennine Alps by Nenad Saljic (Places category, winner) and Eric Guth’s shot of glacial ice washed ashore along Iceland’s eastern coast (Nature category, honourable mention). So ethereal.
