Looking to escape the drizzle and flood waters? You've come to the right gallery.
The 2014 National Geographic Traveller Photography competition has whittled down hundreds of entries to a final selection of seven finalists from six categories: Action, City, Iconic, Modern, Natural and People.
The winner will be announced on 15 February at the Outdoor Adventure and Travel Show at the ExCel Centre in London. We're off to stare at the finalists again and try to remember what sunshine feels like.
