Lantern Release, Thailand

Photograph by Joseph Goh

Thousands of rice paper lanterns and their light trails resemble a swarm of overhead jellyfish during the Yi Peng Lantern Festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand. "The lanterns filled up the sky with a warm light that made me feel like time had stopped completely," writes Joseph Goh, who submitted this image to the Traveler Photo Contest.
