 Selected from more than 18,000 entries, a photograph of a dramatic storm cloud, taken by Marko Korošec of Sezana, Slovenia, has been chosen as the grand-prize winner of the 2014 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest. Korošec has won an eight-day National Geographic Expedition to Alaska’s Inside Passage for two aboard the National Geographic Sea Lion or the National Geographic Sea Bird.

 Nara, The City Taken Over by Deernara-deer-8
Anybody who has travelled to India must have invariably encountered cows on the streets; animals that disrupts traffic and refuse to move. Now replace cows with deer and you’ve got Nara.
Nara is the capital city of Nara Prefecture, and lies south of Kyoto, less than two hours from Tokyo by train. It is a beautiful city full of temples, shrines and ancient ruins, and home to one of the world's largest wooden buildings and one of the largest known statues of Buddha. Between 710 to 784, Nara even served as the capital of Japan. Today, this city of 370,000 has approximately 1,200 deer roaming the streets.

Amazing Miniature Worlds Constructed on Everyday Objects
After years of building traditional model railroad dioramas, Japanese artist Akihiro Morohoshi put a twist on his usual work by embedding the miniature scenes in everyday objects. In his playful works of art, tiny and quaint worlds sit atop and inside discarded Pringle chips cans, matchboxes, guitars, and candy vending machines.

 Shrek a Merino Sheep Who Escaped Shearing for 6 Years
shrek-the-sheep-1
Shrek was a Merino sheep, a castrated male, belonging to South Island, New Zealand, who gained international fame in 2004 owing to his gigantic coat of fleece. Shrek became famous after escaping his enclosure and evading the shearers for six years by hiding in caves. Merino sheep are usually shorn annually but Shrek managed to escape the blade for six years straight. When he was finally caught, the sheep was unrecognizable. “He looked like some biblical creature,” said John Perriam, Shrek’s owner.

Wonderfull Aurora Borealis Dance Across the Night Sky

Wonder full Aurora Borealis Dance Across the Night Sky When the night sky began to fill with eerie green streaks of dancing light, astrophotographer Kwon O Chul turned his camera upwards to capture the dazzling display. Located near Yellowknife in northern Canada, the auroras were so incredibly bright that the Korean photographer needed only mere seconds to capture the luminous phenomenon, which is caused when solar winds are pulled into the earth's atmosphere by magnetic force and the sky illuminates with a powerfully mysterious veil of colors that move and flow overhead.

 Located 4,000 meters above the sea level in the Andes, Tren a las Nubes or “Train to the clouds” is one of the highest railways in the world. It begins its journey from the city of Salta, in Argentina, at an altitude of 1,187 meters, passes through the Valle de Lerma, enters the Quebrada del Toro and finally ends its journey at the La Polvorilla viaduct (4,200 meters). During the 16-hour trip, the train travels 217 km and climbs a staggering 3,000 meters. It crosses 29 bridges, 12 viaducts, 21 tunnels, swoops round two gigantic loops and two switchbacks. Train to The Clouds got its name from the numerous clouds that are often seen under bridges and around slopes.
