Beklager engelske bildetekster
Men National Geographics ba oss om gjengi dem som de var da de er en del av avtalen mellom dem og fotografene.
National Geographic inviterer fotografer fra hele verden til å delta i deres konkuranse: 2013 National Geographic Travel Photo Contest.
Du kan da vinne en 10 dagers ekspedisjon til Galapagos for to med National Geographic Endeavour. Men da må du sende inn et bilde innen 30. juni.
– Konkurransen er 25 år i år. Det gjør den den lengstløpende bildekonkurransen i verden, sier Keith Bellows, redaktør for National Geographic Traveler magasin.
Vi synes at det beste er at vi får se alle de nydelige bildene som er sendt inn. Vaktsjefene hos National Geographic viser sine nye favoritter hver uke.
Men vi har fått titte i noen av bildene, og her er våre 10 favoritter:

Gullfoss: Gullfoss is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. Located in the central north of the island translucent aqua water cascades over the horseshoe shaped falls and races down the canyon. Icicles cling to its rock ledges and fresh snow lies across the landscape under soft diffuse light of the type that only Iceland can deliver.

The power of the Criollo: The power of the Criollo horses at the Cabanha Ipu„ located in Paran‡, Brazil. The Criollo is the native horse of Uruguay (1910), Argentina (1918), Brazil (1932) and Paraguay. It may have the best endurance of any horse breed in the world next to the Arabian.

Yellow Lady: The hostile desert landscape in the Little Rann of Kutch in western Gujarat state is where these day labourers work. The stark, white salt is a challenging environment to work in, dry and bright but there is a peace and beauty to this place too which is overwhelming. It was the second time I visited these parts and each time I leave with a sense of joy and sorrow, the people are lowly paid but full of welcome and smiles to me even though life is tough for them as this is their environment.
