National Geographic has a reputation for fine photography, so it's no surprise that the grand prize winner of its 2019 Travel Photo Contest is an absolute stunner.

Chosen from thousands of entries, the winning snap is called Winter in Greenland and was taken by Weimin Chu.

It depicts the fishing village of Upernavik in northwestern Greenland. Historically, Greenlandic buildings were painted multiple colors to indicate different functions, from red storefronts to blue fishermen's homes - a useful distinction when the landscape is blanketed in snow. Today, colorful homes still dot the snowy landscape.

"Greenlandic Winter" won the contest 's grand prize , and took first place in the Cities category. From the photographer: "Upernavik is a fishing village on a tiny island in west Greenland .

'It felt so harmonious. The whole land was covered by white, cold snow, and the blue tint at dusk made it even cooler. But the light from the windows, street lights and the family of three made the world warm again,' says Chu. 'I love the contrast and mood of this scene. I was busy taking continuous pictures at that time, trying to capture the best moment.'

Chu will receive $7,500 (£5,900) and a post on National Geographic Travel's Instagram account, @natgeotravel.

This year, the contest received entries from around the globe in three categories - nature, cities and people. Here we present the winners in each category.
