Your ridiculous wonderful photoessay of the week

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads

Every year, National Geographic holds a photo contest, allowing readers to submit photographs in three categories, people, places and nature. Last year they received over 16,000 entries from 130 countries. This year’s nominations are open until November 30.

Take a few minutes out of your day and head over to The Atlantic’s In Focus blog, where Alan Taylor has curated a photoessay of 45 wondrous entries from the National Geographic photo contest. From volcanos to bonabos to flocks of birds taking flight, the photos are vivid and varied, and beyond humbling. 

Which one of the entries was your favorite thus far? Number 2 remains the one I can’t get out of my head.
