When I saw the winners of the National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year had been announced, I knew there would be some outstanding images of the natural world around us. The categories were Natures, Cities and People. Below are eight of my favourites, sourced from The Daily Telegraph. You can find out more about the winners, prizes and the high calibre of other entries at The National Geographic website.

It’s also celebrated for its superb photography. Here are eight shots that have been displayed in its publication that I just had to share. Which one grabs you the most?
