The Big Picture always posts some amazing pictures and I highly highly recommend that you subscribe to their feed.
Today (actually two days from now if you look carefully at their dates on their blog posts… 09 January while today is 07 January… but that is besides the point of this post…) the Big Picture posted winning photos from the 2012 National Geographic Photography Contest.
These are amazing.
Take some time at their site, read the descriptions of the photos.
I’ll highlight a few here that I thought were especially interesting/amazing/beautiful/spectacular/fun/breath-taking….
