We’ve got some amazing news from Alter-View’s founder Misha Destroyev. His work ‘Henningsvær Football Field’ has been chosen as one of the finalists of The National Geographic 2017 Travel Photographer of the Year Contest. He will now fight for the Grand Prize – the participation in 10-day National Geographic Galápagos Expedition.

Misha submitted his recent shoot taken with a drone in one of the Lofoten Islands during his last yacht trip in Norway. The football field that is found in Henningsvær island is considered to be one of the most impressive football fields in Europe, and maybe even in the world. The photo was taken at the height of about 120 meters in June 2017. The entry became one of the editor's’ picks during the week 10 of the competition. Lately Micha has been informed that his capture became one of the contest’s finalists.
