What we loved about all three of the top entries was the clear narrative. Not just a well-captured, technically and aesthetically pleasing image, but also a powerful story to elevate the image and make it meaningful, even as a stand-alone image without a caption. Well done to the top three of capturing the essence of what the Getaway Gallery competition is about.

First Place: Johan wins a week-long 4×4 camping trip for two to Namibia with Live The Journey, a Parrot Bebop 2 Drone, DroneGuard CS 400 case, a Tamron lens bundle: 15-30mm f/2.8, 150-600mm f/5-6.3, a Manfrotto MK190xPro3-BHQ2 tripod kit, and a Lowepro ProTactic 450 AW backpack.
