Photos are a way to capture some of the most beautiful moments. When selfies or professional photographs, each click is magical in itself, able to speak volumes. From photographers all over the world bringing out something new every day and the ever-evolving photography tricks and tips doing the rounds, this world is an oyster for the shutterbugs out there. 

An annual competition by National Geographic, Travel Photographer of the Year, this aims to bring out the diversity of the earth with beautiful captures from the world over. There were more than 15,000 entries from which winners were selected and the three categories were people, nature, and cities. 

The prestigious grand prize went to Sergio Tapiro Velasco of Mexico for his out-of-this-world image of a lightning strike, shooting from a volcano's ash cloud. Velasco's picture won the first position in the nature category as well.
