Let instant calm wash over you with these stellar submissions to the 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest

 

We’re hardwired to seek out water. The majority of the world’s population today lives near some form, settling along coastlines, bays, or rivers. For vacation, we head to sandy shores or soak in the views of alpine lakes for ultimate relaxation. Divers get an adrenaline rush when exploring underwater worlds. Hikers find complete solace upon reaching a plunging waterfall. Water boosts our minds, spirits, and bodies.

The 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest is underway, and the entries already reflect this inherent human nature. Many stunning submissions feature watery wonders, from cherry blossoms mirrored in Japan to an undersea scene in Vanuatu. Take a look at some of our editors’ favorites so far, then be sure to submit your best shot.

Angkor Adventures: Preah Khan Temple

The jungle temple of Preah Khan, Angkor, Cambodia.

Preah Khan Temple

The second in a series covering Angkor and Siem Reap in Cambodia

 

Leaving Banteay Srei and heading south, back towards the center of Angkor, we head for Preah Khan.

Preah Khan was built almost 1,000 years ago, for king Jayavarman, and today is a quasi-ruin partially overtaken by the thick jungle forrest. Surrounded by a moat, coming to Preah Khan gives the feeling of travelling to a temple ruin hidden in the jungle. The temple is ‘partially restorted’ with the caretaking, apparently, intentionally giving this impression. There are numerous piles of stones, building and wall ruins, along with several massive trees whose roots have intertwined with different structures.

The temple complex is a diverse one, in terms of religion. Both Buddhism and Hinduism are portrayed and honor via numerous carvings. In fact, there are supposively over 500 divinitie of various sorts to which Preah Khan was dedicated. Vishnu and Shiva, as well has numerous Mahayanna Buddist divinities are all immortalized in the structure and carvings of Preah Khan.

Walking around Preah Khan is easy, even though it’s one of the larger temple complexes. Similar to Banteay Srei, Preah Khan is built on flat ground and all one level, basically. There are many doorways with thresholds and a few steps, but all in all, it’s definitely one of the easier, more laid-back temples to walk about. Being somewhat overtaken by the jungle, there is a great deal of shade at Preah Kahn. While the mid-day heat can make temple trecking in Angkor daunting (don’t do Banyon in the middle of the day!), this is one temple I would recommend seeing mid-day.

Preah Khan should be on any Angkor visitors’ list. You really are heading off to see an ancient temple/temple ruin hidden in the jungle when you visit Preah Khan. Not too trips have such an option so I recommend it.

Houhai in Nanshan

Shenzhen, China

Geography recap.  Southern China, just across the border from Hong Kong is Shenzhen.  In the southwest of Shenzhen is the Nanshan District.  Very hip, and diverse for China, Nanshan has a neighborhood in its northern section called Houhai.  Houhai’s off the water some, just west of the small wetlands.  It is one of the key shopping and dinning sports in Nanshan, which is another way of saying it’s swanky.  Great area all in all.  Can’t wait to see and shoot more of it.

National Geographic: Pictures: 10 Unusual Baby Animals You Don't See Every Day

Frisky puppies and fluffy kittens don’t have the corner on cute—baby eels, boars, and baboons are just as aww-worthy.

 

Spring means droves of baby animals making their way into the world, on four legs, two legs, or—in the case of jellyfish—no legs at all.

But frisky puppies and fluffy kittens don’t have the corner on the cute market—other new arrivals can be just as aww-worthy. (See “4 Baby Bird Cams You Should Watch This Spring.”)

Angkor Adventures: Banteay Srei Temple

Banteay Srei Temple, Angkor, Cambodia

Banteay Srei Temple

The first in a series covering Angkor and Siem Reap in Cambodia

Getting into Siem Reap and to a hotel is easy and straight forward. A small, but nice airport, with plenty of cabs to quickly get travelers to their destinations. A tourist visa can be obtained at the airport, and while there’s some complaining, they will take payment in RMB.

Our Tuk Tuk driver for a few days.

The morning of day 1 we meet up with San. San’s going to be our Tuk Tuk driver for the next three days. Tuk tuk is THE way to get around Siem/Angkor, hands-down. They’re everywhere, super affordable, and great for the sub-tropical weather. After a short pow-wow we come up with a three day plan for seeing all the temples, attempting to line-up time of day light to match locations.

 

Our first stop on the temple tour is Banteay Srei Temple, the “Citadel of Women”.

Banteay Srei Temple

Banteay Srei Temple is unique among the many Angkor temples for a few reasons. For one, it’s the only of the Angkor temples not built by some sort of monarch. The temple complex, also unlike any of the others, is carved out of red sandstone. This gives great color to the temple, and is really eye catching in early morning light. It also serves to preserve the carvings extremely well. The red sandstone of Banteay Srei does not erode nearly as quickly as many of the other temples, such as Banyon. The remaining detail at the ‘Citadel of Women’ is impressive because of this feature.

The red sandstone allows for long lasting, detailed, carvings.

The buildings of the complex are also small, especially compared to most Angkor temples. The small lay-out can make it a little crowded feeling, but the ease of access is very nice. Along with the morning light on the red sandstone, this is a great temple to see in the morning.

 

The ‘Citadel of Women’ turns out being a popular choice among tourists once they visit. The intricate carvings are unmatched by any of the other temples. The colors are fantastic, and it is probably the easiest of the temples to walk around due to its size and lay-out.

Banteay Srei Temple is more out of the way, comparably, but well worth the trip to go see. If you secure a Tuk Tuk for a day (or several), which I highly recommend, the drive is quite nice. Since Angkor itself is one large historic site, there’s some pleasant scenery to soak in while riding in an open Tuk Tuk.

 

Banteay Srei Temple is an absolute must see for anyone visiting Angkor.
