See some of January's most popular photos

Every day, we feature an image chosen from thousands submitted to our photo community, Your Shot. Here are some of the month's highlights.

The standout photos from this month did a great job of framing the action in front of them.

While editing through this month's submissions, I felt goosebumps seeing the dizzying heights of that slackliner's webbing or those bikers careening along the sides of a "Wall of Death."

Many of January's top shots captured thrilling moments that exhiliarted our viewers.

Francis Rivera produces Photo of the Day, a curated look at photography from National Geographic’s photo community, Your Shot . Melody Rowell writes and researches the captions. Submit your photos and you could be published online or in our magazines. See the highlights from previous months here.
