Highly Commended, Black and White: Circle of Life by Alex Mustard

London’s Natural History Museum has unveiled some of the finalists of its Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2019 competition. This year’s contest saw almost 50,000 entries from both professional and amateur shooters from 100 countries around the globe.

The finalists include some amazing underwater images by well-known photographers, including Alex Mustard’s swirling shoal of bigeye trevally in the Red Sea, Thomas Peschak’s gray whale approaching a pair of hands reaching down from a tourist boat in Baja California, and Fabien Michenet’s juvenile jackfish peering out from inside a small jellyfish off Tahiti.

The winners will be announced on Tuesday, October 15, at an awards ceremony in the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall, and the exhibition of pictures at the Museum opens on the following Friday, October 18, running till May 31, 2020.

If you didn’t get the chance to enter this year, no worries: Next year’s competition is opening soon—on October 21.
