Explore A Thousand Years, Baobab Tree, and more!

Merit Winner: Near the city of Morondava, on the West coast of Madagascar lies an ancient forest of Baobab trees. Unique to Madagascar, the endemic species is sacred to the Malagasy people, and rightly so. Walking amongst these giants is like nothing else on this planet. Some of the trees here are over a thousand years old. It is a spiritual place, almost magical. (Photo and caption by Ken Thorne/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)

Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this photograph of a bizarre tree in Denmark. Of the photo she says: "This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter. It has looked this way always."
