Igor Mikula, “Caring Parent,” Czech Republic

Chosen from more than 8,000 submissions, the winners of this year’s Nature TTL Photographer of the Year competition capture both the immense beauty of our planet and the threats we face with a changing climate. Thomas Vijayan took home the top prize for his heartbreaking panoramic of the Austofonna Ice Cap cracking and emitting gushing waterfalls into the sea. Covering more than 8,000 square kilometers, Austoffana is rapidly melting in a region experiencing the disastrous effects of warming temperatures and rising sea levels. Also recognized were a spectacular image of the Northern Lights streaming through an Icelandic cave, a jaguar wandering through a cinder block wall, and a ball of honeybees clamoring for a new home.
