National Geographic has announced the winners of its annual Nature Photographer of the Year award.

2018’s grand-prize winner is Jassen Todorov, who will be awarded a $5,000 prize for his aerial image of thousands of Volkswagen and Audi cars in the Mojave Desert, pictured in the first slide in the gallery above. The winners were chosen from a pool of almost 10,000 entries that were submitted across various categories like wildlife, places and people.

Read Todorov’s caption below, then head to National Geographic to check out this year’s winners.

“Thousands of Volkswagen and Audi cars sit idle in the middle of California’s Mojave Desert. Models manufactured from 2009 to 2015 were designed to cheat emissions tests mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Following the scandal, Volkswagen recalled millions of cars. By capturing scenes like this one, I hope we will all become more conscious of and more caring toward our beautiful planet.”
