Canadian Geographic | The best of the best images from the 2019 competition

The Milky Way rises over the Alberta badlands. A northern pygmy-owl fixes its challenging yellow gaze on the photographer who has dared to enter its forest on northern Vancouver Island. A kayaker dips her paddles in the calm waters of an Ontario lake as dawn paints the sky in shades of vivid turquoise and pink. The winning images in Canadian Geographic’s 34th Annual Photo Competition are a testament to the incredible geographic and biological diversity of this country, and the talents of our photographic community.

Top 25 Photos on Flickr in 2019

The year is wrapping up, which means it’s time to highlight some of the most popular, interesting, and engaging photographs uploaded to Flickr in 2019. Ready for some inspiration?

To compile this top 25 list, we started with an algorithm that took into account several engagement metrics, like how many times the photo was viewed, faved, or commented. The selection also involved curation by Flickr staff.

Most of the top photos come from long-term community members, professional and self-taught photographers from different countries around the world with an eye for people, nature, and beautiful landscapes.
