National Geo photos 2011


Recommended Posts

I think NG consistently has the best pics around, and must have some of the best photographers as well as photo editors who select them and the pics. The transition to digital was seamless. I heard somewhere that NG was a major buyer and supporter of Kodachrome in its day.

That particular image caught my attention--knowing how difficult and (likely) expensive it is to do that (the really big-and-heavy-lens crowd), and how rare it is to have the right kind of light in the right place...etc., etc. I'd guess that it takes several thousand shots...maybe more...to do that and a lot still depends on luck.

For some of these photographers, these are literally once-in-a-lifetime shots.
