CoinaPhoto user: Jonathan Cataldi

Photo: Aletsch Landscape

Location: Valais, Switzerland


Winner's Inspiration: 

I wanted to show how small we are in comparison of this amazing natural site: the Glacier of Aletsch. It is still a monster of ice, but no matter how small we are beside it, humans will destroy it if we don't pay heed to global warming (we can see easily how it become smaller each year). - Jonathan

Judge’s Feedback:

"The photographer takes in the real essence of a grand European landscape. The photo gets you to ask yourself various fundamental questions bout how vast our planet is and how small our daily struggles are in comparison to it. Jonathan actively captures every ridge of the rugged landscape. The scene looks very real yet magical at the same time." - Rumaisa 


Other entries that won us over:

Photo: Going to school

Photographer: Tiago Marques

Location: Lake Braies, Italy


"Tiago captures every hint of colour, design and structure upon the frozen lake in Italy. The shades of green freeze into one another painting a sharp canvas against the barren branch in winter." - Rumaisa


Photo: Lake Bled

Photographer: Miroslav Asanin

Location: Bled Lake, Slovenia


"The photo makes you halt for a second with amazement. The sight itself is a rare one to behold. Miroslav is able to shoot every hint of the frost and fog during winter in Slovenia. Perfect aperture settings used for this photo make it all the more crisp and captivating."- Rumaisa
