Southern Alps, New Zealand
Photograph by Michael Melford, National Geographic

Snowcapped and shrouded in clouds, the Southern Alps create a stunning vista in New Zealand. A tumult of peaks that run like a jagged spine through the South Island, the Southern Alps got their name from Capt. James Cook, who first spied the chain in 1770.

Trunk Show
Photograph by Ashwati Vipin, National Geographic Your Shot

“I’ve had a keen interest in wildlife from the time I was a little kid feeding the neighborhood elephant lots of bananas and plums at my grandma's place in Haridwar, India,” writes Your Shot member Ashwati Vipin, who captured this tussling pair at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi National Park, Kenya. The trust rescues and rehabilitates orphaned elephants and rhinos. “[They] held a short event where they brought out their resident elephants and discussed their history, feeding habits, and the state of elephant conservation. Meanwhile, the elephants went about playing and feeding. I knew I could not miss this opportunity to photograph [these two].”

Trollstigen Road in Norway

One car’s slow progress creates a trail of light along Trollstigen, a famously serpentine mountain road in western Norway, in this time exposure. The road’s 11 hairpin turns create exhilarating driving conditions—and several turnoffs provide photographers with a perfect view.
