Third place, Most Epic Selfie: Jake Hartmann, Interlaken, Switzerland. “Free Fallin’: This photo was taken while I was paragliding above the city of Interlaken, Switzerland. The canal below connects Lake Brienz and Lake Thun, the two lakes that surround the town. From this height there was also an amazing view of the Bernese Alps!”
