Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best shots showing wind in nature with chances to win a Vanguard Alta Sky 45D Camera Backpack and more.

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Chris Poplawski for his collaboration as a guest judge in this nature photo contest: "My name is Chris, I’m a Southern California native who travels full-time for anything that keeps a camera in my hand. I’m home one week of every month and have managed to explore 12 new countries since I started a year ago, with my favorite being a tiny chain of islands in the North Atlantic ocean known as the Faroe Islands. A large portion of my work is dedicated to traveling with brands (products) and for weddings, but personally I love experiencing new landscapes and engaging with wildlife in their natural element."
