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.

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.
