National Geographic has always been renowned for its outstanding photography. Since the advent of the internet being available to the masses, the scope for National Geographic to gather more outstanding photography and bring it to their viewers and readershop has expanded greatly – they no longer rely solely on their own photographers’ images published in their monthly magazine.
For more than 10 years, the National Geographic website have been selecting a Photo of the Day, with a theme applied to each month.
For this round-up, I selected the Photo of the Day gallery from September 2010, the theme is Nature and Weather.
Some of these photos were shot by National Geographic’s photographers, and some are submissions from the Your Shot and My Shot galleries.
The photographer’s comments have been included for each photo.
