Photo of the Day: Best of June

Every day, we feature an image chosen from thousands around National Geographic. Here are 10 favorites from June.

Great photography has the potential to transport us to places that are outside our normal day-to-day existence. This month's collection of my favorite Photo of the Day images will take you all over the world, from a water lily garden in Vietnam to dramatic Thor's Well in Oregon. These photographs remind us that we can experience profound beauty no matter where we are.

Janna Dotschkal is the editor of Photo of the Day, a curated look at photography from around National Geographic, including the magazine and our photo community, Your Shot. Liane DiStefano writes the captions and titles.
