❝ This image by Sergio Tapiro Velasco has won the 2017 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest. He has been photographing Mexico’s Colima volcano for more than a decade. To take this image, he carefully tracked increases in its activity. “When I looked on the camera display, all I could do was stare,” said Velasco. “It’s an impossible photograph and my once in a lifetime shot that shows the power of nature.”
Awe-inspiring. I’ve been taking photographs since I was 8 years old. Mostly capturing what I see and saving them for myself, sometimes for others, rarely for publication. Velasco is a master worth learning from. Here’s a link to his own site.
