National Geographic photo competition top shots

These stunning images have been taken in different places from across the world. They are the winning photos chosen for a competition in the National Geographic magazine. Check them out.
The finalists of the National Geographic Traveller Photography competition 2014 have been announced - Jonathan Carvajal won the action category for his picture of a runner taking part in a Colour Run in Colombia. It's a 5 km race that takes place in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, but unlike normal fun runs this one involves a lot of paint... runners get showered with different coloured paints at every kilometre and finish up looking like sweaty rainbows!

This is a common kingfisher, and he's just caught his dinner. Jamie MacArthur took this and it won the nature category. He said: "I spent many long hours over 5 days in a tiny hide (being bitten by midgies) to get this shot. It was worth it though."
