Last April, we held a Cover Photo Challenge for the month of May. We asked you to show us some breathtaking Seascapes. And wow, did you deliver—there were 1,900 entries.

You might’ve already noticed the winning photo, “The Sacred Gate” by Yoshihiko Wada as our new cover photo on our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages. Congrats, Yoshihiko—and thanks to everyone who submitted their photos.

We still can’t help but fall in love with 20+ more spectacular seascapes in our contest gallery. Scroll down for the runner-up photos that took our breath away:

It was seriously a challenge to pick out just a few to feature. Got more time to kill? Browse more spectacular Seascapes from the contest gallery.
