10 Incredible Nature Shots in 2014 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

For the last few months, we've been showing you many of the outstanding entries in the 2014 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest. From Mirror Wave, a perfect mirror reflection caught amongst the gorgeous red rock in Arizona, to Floating Car, a stunning reflection of a car shot at the world's largest salt flat, each image is almost guaranteed to give you an incredible amount of wanderlust. These ten are no different. Here are more awe-inspiring photos that are sure to awaken your travel-desiring spirit.

You now only have until June 30 to submit your best travel photo into this contest. Remember, there are four main categories - Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes, Sense of Place, and Spontaneous Moments. You could possibly win that once-in-a-lifetime trip to Alaska. Good luck!

Above: End of the World
Location: Banos, Ecuador
This photo, taken at the 'end of the world' swing in Banos, Ecuador, captures a man on the swing overlooking an erupting Mt. Tungurahua. The eruption took place on February 1st, 2014. Minutes after the photo was taken, we had to evacuate the area because of an incoming ash cloud.

Tree-like Rivers in Baja California Desert
Location: Baja Caifornia, México
I took this shot flying on a trike ultralight over the coast of Baja California, México, where the sea joins the desert forming rivers of tree-like figures.

The Unconscious
Location: Moremi, Okavango Delta, Botswana
Young cub baboon jumping around captured in Moremi, Okavango Delta, Botswana.

Northern Curtain
Location: Tromsø, Norway
Stunning Aurora Borealis seen just on the outskirts of Tromsø in Norway.

The World's Largest Highly Acidic Lake
Location: Kawah Ijen, Mount Merapi, East Java, Indonesia
On the west of Mount Merapi, is the 1km wide turquoise colored acid crater lake called Kawah Ijen It is the world's largest highly acidic lake (pH<0.5) and it lies inside a larger caldera of the Ijen Volcanoes. To capture this photo, I had to start climbing a steep 3km track before sunrise. Upon arrival, I waited until the sun was just behind Mount Merapi, allowing me to expose the lake's turquoise color in shadow while the rest of the environment was well lit. Luckily, the wind had also swept across just in time, clearing the rising smoke to expose the wondrous landscape in-front of me.

Just Hanging Out
Location: Flå, Hallingdal, Norway
As full autumn hits the valley of Hallingdal in Norway, this bear chills out in a tree which seems to barely cover its weight.

Otter Doing Loops
Location: Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary
This guy was having so much fun swimming along and then doing a loop before surfacing. Was beautiful to watch and amazing to capture!

Location: Columbia River Gorge, Oregon
Seeing the shafts of light in the canyon is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. It was a surreal feeling being surrounded by the towering cliffs. The only way I could capture this special moment of the weeping walls was after an incredibly torrential rain. I knew I had to get to a shallow portion of the river to unfold my tripod. I was drenched from head to toe by the falling water. Mist and rain covered the camera, but I fired a few shots. As I stood in awe of the scene, the sun broke through for a few seconds and cast God’s rays into the side lit waterfall.

Your Curve
Location: Point Danger, Tweed Heads
These two dolphins where playing out in the deeper ocean for some time, as the set of waves came through they followed the lump of swell towards the shore racing each other for the key position, as the wave started breaking one pulled off the back as to not 'drop in' on the other.

Stylish Llama
Location: Laguna Colorado, Bolivia
At 14,000ft in icy winds this llama was completely at home. It was a different world for me. I'd like to think that we shared a moment.
