The Upshot

National Geographic user snapshots showcase world’s natural wonders

The Upshot

National Geographic is famous for high-quality professional photojournalism, but photos that readers themselves shoot and submit are often just as amazing. Every weekday, the magazine's editors choose their Daily Dozen favorites. The photos that are voted highest by online visitors are made available for download in National Geographic's Weekly Wrapper as computer wallpaper.

Reader photos are submitted from around the globe. The incredible labyrinth-like landscape below was photographed by He Qustuf at LongJi Terrace in Guilin, China.
