  • 3. Kalahari Lion by Chris Johns / National Geographic A lion patrols the dry Nossob riverbed, center of a vast refuge for big game. Here South Africa’s Kalahari Gemsbok National Park is joined by a fenceless border with Botswana’s larger Gemsbok National Park, representing an African trend toward transnational parks allowing wildlife free rein in their natural ecosystem.

  • 5. Redwoods by Michael "Nick" Nichols / National Geographic At least 1,500 years old, a 300-foot titan in California's Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park has the most complex crown scientists have mapped.

  • 7. River Dolphins by Kevin Schafer / National Geographic River dolphins navigating the Amazon Basin’s tea-colored brew of silt and rotting vegetation seem to glow orange. Out of water they’re pale gray, with some marked in pink. Called botos here in Brazil, they use high-frequency sonar clicks to build a 3-D echogram of their dark world.
  • 8. Henry Gray, Rancher by William Albert Allard / National Geographic Cattle rancher Henry Gray exhibits the self-reliance and independence typical of the American West.
  • 9. Reindeer in Russia by Dean Conger / National Geographic Reindeer cross the Siberian snow near Oymyakon, in the U.S.S.R. A young girl atop one of the animals herds them forward toward her family's tent and a break for food and rest.
  • 10. Titanic by Emory Kristof / National Geographic With 10,000 watts of light and cutting-edge submersible technology, the Titanic comes to life from two and a half miles beneath the ocean's surface.

  • 12. Toxic Smoke, Nigeria by Ed Kashi / National Geographic Navigating through toxic smoke from burning tires, Paulinous Uko carries a goat to be butchered in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Toxic smoke from tire fires —used to loosen the skin of animals.
  • 13. Women in Afghanistan by Lynsey Addario / National Geographic A woman and her pregnant daughter—ready to give birth at any moment—wait quietly on a mountainside in Afghanistan. I saw two women on the side of the mountain, in burkas and without a man. In Afghanistan you seldom see an unaccompanied woman. Noor Nisa, about 18, was pregnant; her water had just broken. Her husband, whose first wife had died during childbirth, was determined to get Noor Nisa to the hospital in Faizabad, a four-hour drive from their village in Badakhshan Province. His borrowed car broke down, so he went to find another vehicle. I ended up taking Noor Nisa, her mother, and her husband to the hospital, where she delivered a baby girl. My interpreter, who is a doctor, and I were on a mission to photograph maternal health and mortality issues, only to find the entire story waiting for us along a dusty Afghan road.
  • 14. The Hadza by Martin Schoeller / National Geographic Nija, a Hadza boy about eight years old, sat for his portrait in a makeshift tent- studio in northern Tanzania.
  • 15. Seven Pears by Sam Abell / National Geographic Seven pears occupy a Moscow windowsill, catching the light of the afternoon sun.

  • 21. Mecca by Thomas J. Abercrombie / National Geographic A quarter million Muslims jam Haram Mosque in the holy city of Mecca to pay homage to Allah. Those in the center (blurred in this time exposure) circle the black-draped Kaaba, most sacred of Islamic shrines. Muslims believe the Prophet Abraham—like Muhammad a messenger of God—and his son Ishmael built the first structure here.
  • 22. Mirror Image by Paul Nicklen / National Geographic His image mirrored in icy water, a polar bear travels submerged—a tactic often used to surprise prey.

  • 24. Monsoon by Steve McCurry / National Geographic Women in northern India seek shelter from the winds of a premonsoon dust storm. McCurry once said, ‘You can’t get hung up on what you think your “real” destination is. The journey is just as important.’ The evidence of his attitude was amply realized when McCurry was driving along a highway in Rajasthan, India. He was stopped by a dust storm and he captured the moment a group of workers were protecting each other from the choking dust.

  • 28. Jane Goodall by Michael “Nick” Nichols / National Geographic A chimp reaches out to Jane Goodall. The touch-- an exquisite moment for Jane Goodall-- came when a chipanzee she had never seen before reached out his hand to her. Jou Jou, a full-grown chimpanz ee had been caged alone for years in the Brazzaville Zoo. He is desparate for contact with other living beings.
  • 29. Nansen’s Ghost by Børge Ousland / National Geographic A young polar bear eyes an unfamiliar green tent.

  • 31. Afghan Girl by Steve McCurry / National Geographic Haunting eyes and a tattered garment tell the plight of a girl who fled her native Afghanistan for a refugee camp in Pakistan. When he wandered into an Afghan refugee camp in Pakistan in December 1984, National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry captured one of the most famous portraits the world had ever seen. The Afghan girl with the haunting green eyes captivated everyone. That captivation proved, once again, the power of photography to open eyes—and hearts and minds—with a single image.
  • 32. Afghan Woman With Goldfinches by Thomas J. Abercrombie / National Geographic Completely covered by a traditional chadri, an Afghan woman balances caged goldfinches she purchased at a market in Kabul.

Bird hunters crouch in the Indus River just outside Mohenjo daro, Pakistan. They tie their pet birds to the hoops in the river to bring in other birds and they wear a hand crafted mask from one of their former prey. When the birds land they crouch in the water, wiggle their heads so it looks like they are just one bird swimming up to another bird and then they grab their prey with their bare hands.
  • 49. Sulawesi Women by James Nachtwey/ National Geographic Facing the dawn, women of the An-Nadzir commune begin Islam’s Feast of the Sacrifice, which celebrates the Koran’s account of God sparing the prophet Ismail. As the sun rises, their prayers join those raised by a chorus of Indonesia’s Muslims, fundamentalist and moderate alike: “Allah akbar.” God is great.
