Full Speed to Kandy, Sri Lanka.

‘There’s no better way to travel than like the locals,’ says Yanick Targonski, winner of the action category in this year’s National Geographic Traveller (UK) Photography Competition.
In Sri Lanka, that often means standing in the open door or even hanging outside the train because of overcrowding.
This shot was taken on the journey from Ella, in Sri Lanka’s hill country, to Kandy:
‘Capturing the image meant hanging outside the door at full speed – wind in your hair, trees so close you could touch them – and juggling the camera with one hand, holding it as still as possible to avoid camera shake.’
