Winner - Life in the sloth lane by Judy Gordon

This photo was taken on the road between Monteverde and San Antonio in Costa Rica, where I was doing a private tour with our eldest daughter. Our driver spotted it and pulled over. Fortunately, I had my Canon EOS 7D and EF 100-400 lens with image stabiliser at the ready, as they move quicker than you might think! 

Commended - Polar bear family, Canada by Lisa Anderson

The picture was taken from a Tundra Buggy in Hudson Bay, Canada. This was the day the sea froze over, so the polar bears could go and hunt again after a long summer with little food. A lot of polar bears in Canada migrate to this point, as it’s where the sea freezes first. 

Commended - A view from the Rocky Mountaineer train by Roger Youngs

Travelling alongside the Thompson and Fraser rivers is awe-inspiring, as the dramatic scenery changes around each weave of the railway from Jasper to Vancouver. We travelled at a leisurely pace, enjoying the contrasting views along with the company of our fellow travellers.
