When it comes to nature, places and people photography, National Geographic it’s not just a magazine it’s THE magazine. That’s because each year, here you’ll have the chance to see probably the world’s best photos. In today’s article, you’ll going to view and admire 30 breathtaking photos.

These come from two contests: Traveler, which ended 2 months ago and the 2012 Photo Contest which is in its 6 week. And it will end on 30th of November. So, if you think that you have done some great shots with your camera then you should definitely upload them on NG. Plus, the $10.000 prize should be persuasive enough. Nevertheless, I will now let you enjoy these fantastic images. Therefore, be inspired and if you will like this article, then please share it with your friends or community.

P.S. You can upload photos for the National Geographic 2012 Photo Contest by clicking here.
