2015 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest, Part II

The 27th annual National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest is underway, and entries will be accepted until the end of the month, June 30, 2015. First-prize winner will receive an eight-day photo expedition for two, to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal. National Geographic was once again kind enough to allow me to share more of the early entries with you here, gathered from four categories: Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes, Sense of Place, and Spontaneous Moments. Photos and captions by the photographers.
