The top 250 finalists have just been selected in the 3rd edition of the Red Bull Illume Image Quest photo competition. This year the competition received more than 28,000 entries by 6,417 photographers from 124 countries.
The Atlantic’s Alan Taylor has rounded up about 40 or so photos, which mainly comprise action sports such as surfing, rock climbing, etc. There are some really rad photos in the set, with many of them seemingly sci-fi-ish. Anyway, the one above is a personal favorite.
