There were 18,000 entries in this year’s National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest, and the handful that emerged as winners are pretty damn spectacular. The top prize went to Marko Korošec for his shot entitled “Independence Day”—it’s name being chosen because the cloud system he captured outside Julesburg, Colorado happened to look like a ship from the movie. Check out some of the winners here and then figure out which one will be your new wallpaper.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
