National Geographic's 2012 Traveler Photo Contest Winners Announced / The first-place shot went to “Butterfly,” taken by photographer Cedric Houin in the Afghanistan’s Kyrgyz lands of the Wakhan Corridor, a desperately remote area at a whopping 14,000 ft. elevation. On the winning entry, NatGeo contributing photographer and judge Alexandra Avakian said, “The location is hard to reach and off the beaten path for most travelers, and therefore of educational as well as aesthetic value.”

Winner Cedric Houin: This image was shot in the Kyrgyz lands of the Wakhan Corridor. The intimacy of this everyday life moment, shot inside of a family yurt, is in total contrast with the harsh environment these nomadic tribes live in

This image is so creative using the flower as a tutu. I like how the colors in this image are very warm and there is a little bit of orange in the flower. It helps the image how the flower is in focus but everything else is blurry.
