An image of a snow leopard in India from National Geographic was named Best Overall Photo in the 2008 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition . Steve Winter, who took the shot, says, "This is the hardest story I have ever done because of the altitude and the steepness of the mountains. At night it was 30 below zero [F°]." The other winning photographs include a dreamy underwater image of a southern right whale in New Zealand; a amazing closeup of a snake fighting with a frog in Belize and a surreal portrait of a black-crested macaque on Indonesia's Sulawesi island.
