These breathtaking photos capture some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes

Soaring mountaintops, majestic ice caves, and the aurora borealis

In recent times, many of us have spent far too long amidst the landscapes of our living rooms, so this new photo contest from Agora might just be the ultimate antidote to cabin fever.

The #Landscape2020 contest fielded 14,739 entries, which were in turn whittled down to 50 finalists. These are our favourite shots…
