I love images that take me somewhere else, show me something I’ve never seen or show color and light uniquely. If you didn’t particularly care for my selections or if I managed to wet your photography appetite, hop on over to the Nat Geo winners galleries and spend some time perusing over some of these amazing pictures that are in 3 categories: people, places and nature.

Some of them are just soooooooooo beautiful!!!!
