These Photos From National Geographic Readers Are Beyond Beautiful

Oct 14, 2013

National Geographic is known as a beacon of the world's finest photography. But now, the magazine's readers are being asked to document their own lives in a massive, collaborative photo project.

The effort, called "Your Shot, National Geographic's photo community," lets readers connect with the organization's photographers and editors around virtual assignments. The first theme, "Explore Our Changing World," has already produced some stunning images from around the world, from nature, humanity and the animal kingdom.

Take a look at some of the incredible photographs below, and head on over to Your Shot to submit some of your own.
