The stunning picture can be viewed at the Natural History Museum in London.

During the festive season, the contenders for the People’s Choice Award for Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 were announced. This accolade honors adept wildlife photographers who have the skill to capture images of untamed creatures in their native environments and natural states. This year’s competition boasted captivating photos of crimson foxes, majestic golden snub-nosed monkeys, and adorable polar bear cubs. However, the winning entry was recently chosen.

Out of the 60,466 votes cast for the 25 leading contestants, the victor of this prestigious award is Sascha Fonseca, a talented photographer from Germany. Fonseca captured a remarkable picture of a snow leopard perched amidst the Ladakh mountains in northern India at dusk. Not only is the image visually captivating, but the subject itself was incredibly challenging to locate, given that there are just approximately 6,500 snow leopards remaining in the world.

“Through photography, one can establish a bond between people and wildlife, inspiring them to admire the allure of the hidden natural realm,” Fonseca expressed in a written statement. “I am of the opinion that a better comprehension of wildlife instills a deeper sense of concern, which ideally leads to active support and heightened public interest in conservation efforts.”

“A testament to unwavering dedication and persistence, Sascha’s extraordinary image encapsulates the breathtaking splendor of our planet, reminding us of our collective duty to preserve it,” remarked Douglas Gurr, the director of the Natural History Museum in London. The photograph is presently being exhibited at the museum and will remain on view until the 2nd of July.
