Recently, 2015’s top travel photos were unveiled by National Geographic and they are undoubtedly a treat for the eyes. National Geographic, now part of the Rupert Murdoch empire is known for its stunning travel photography that takes one through enthralling cultures around the world, travel destinations and magnificent natural wonders. To say goodbye to the year 2015, it has selected 50 best daily travel photos from around the globe, which include the fascinating northern lights over Iceland, a colourful market in Malaysia, the frosty Yellowstone National Park, Chile and Belgium.

In one such photo, photographer Gleb Tarro has captured the early morning light on Cuernos (Horns) del Paine in Chile’s wild Torres del Paine National Park. Photographer Martin Harvey’s image of flamingos flying across Lake Bogoria in Kenya only makes one desire for a visit, reports Herald Sun.

The San Rafael Falls photo by Ivan Kashinsky has been captioned “The Coca River roars over the San Rafael Falls, the largest waterfall in Ecuador. Tucked into a cloud forest, San Rafael is near Baeza in the country's northeast.” Susan Seubert’s Matterhorn photo will most definitely inspire photographers, winter sports enthusiasts and climbers to book their tickets.

National Geographic has also unveiled its 2015 “Photo of the Day” favourites and they feature images taken by its “YourShot” community. Members can take photo assignments with National Geographic’s “YourShot” community. The photos have to be taken daily. The best photos are published in the magazine. This year, photos were submitted featuring locations as far as Antarctica and Iceland.

Jeff Hester, a “YourShot” member’s “All the Fish in the Sea” photo has been praised a lot because of the photographer’s thought process. It’s an image of a diver at Cabo Pulmo marine park off Mexico’s Baja California peninsula; standing on ocean bed while fishes form a bunch ahead of him. When asked why he took the photo, Hester said he wants oceans to be like this, full of life.
