Photo of the Day: Best of June
Every day, we feature an image chosen from thousands around National Geographic. Here are some highlights from June.
Campy, sublime, playful, dazzling, graceful. Each moment chosen as a Photo of the Day is a story unto itself. The fun of the monthly round-up comes with seeing visual echoes which you otherwise might not—shapes, tones, and moods coming together to tell a new tale. Here is a selection of images from June that speak to me. Which ones would you choose?
