Competition winners (Issue 11, 2009)

We would like to thank all the competition participants for sharing their wonderful photos and experiences with us. We had a hard time chosing just two winners, but we decided that they are:

Ha-Uyen Phug Nguyen from Vietnam is the winner of an iPod Nano.

'I always like watching the sunrise and sunset and it was one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever enjoyed. The night before I decided to get up early in order to watch the sunrise by the ocean. It was about 5.30am and the scenery was so exciting that I came up with this picture's idea as you see. At that moment, it felt breathtaking and I wanted to jump high to release my excitement. I felt I could disolve into the sky and into this wonderful nature. Con Dao is one of the most wildest and most beautifuk islands in Vietnam. I will definitely go back there.'
