National Geographic’s annual traveler photo contest never goes unnoticed! Thousands of people (more than 10,000 this year!) submit their pictures taken while traveling the globe – or just their backyards! And the submissions are always the best of the best!

This year’s winner was from Hong Kong – Anthony Lau captured an amazing moment when a group of Mongolian horsemen raced past him in Inner Mongolia. Runner-up pictures were just as stunning! Take a look:

This grand prize winner talked about the day he spotted these Mongolia horsemen showing off in the freezing Inner Mongolia temperatures. “When I saw Inner Mongolia horsemen showing off their skills and commanding the steed from a distance. I quickly grabbed my telephoto lens and captured the moment when one of the horseman charged out from morning mist.”
