National Geographic was founded in 1888 with a mission to inspire curiosity in our readers and help them better understand the world around them.
That mission continues today, through the eyes and lenses of our photo community, Your Shot. Thousands of these photographers span the globe, documenting their diverse communities and the beautiful natural world around them. We feature one submission each day as a part of Photo of the Day, a daily peek at a different corner of the globe that will inspire wanderlust.
Check out some of our favorite landscape images from the last year.
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.
