One beautiful snapshot it is! Birds in the shape of bird are looking incredible. This is not only one of the best photos of the year, but also one of the most popular Instagram photos of 2018. Well, it deserves to be. Isn’t it?
This is one most exquisite snap of all. Oh yes, this is not only beautiful because of the view but also extremely attractive because it depicts how one fisherman saves a boy from drowning.
It is another shot of beauty! This picture makes us want to go to New York to enjoy this beautiful lightning. Wonderful!
It is one beautiful view from the Tuamotu Archipelago in French Polynesia where, at night, gray reef sharks hunt in a group in the south channel of Fakarava Atoll. This was snapped by photographer Laurent Ballesta and his team who were diving without cages or weapons, and they counted 700 sharks.
This picture says only one word, Beautiful! It is a fascinating night view of Victoria Harbour from Victoria Peak. One interesting fact about this place is that this natural landform harbor is separating Hong Kong Island in the south from the mainland to the north.
Ah! His eyes are saying how he got that few minutes of privacy only to take a sip of water in peace.
Only one question came into my mind, “How did the photographer take this shot?” Truly amazing!
This spellbinding beauty of the forest will surely make you want to go there. Doesn't it?
How beautiful it is when one Hindu festival is celebrated in New York. Yes, look at these two women celebrating Holi in Richmond Hill, Queens, New York. This Hindu festival is the symbol of the arrival of spring as well as the victory of good over evil. And, festival goers apply colored powder and paint on each other. Similarly, people of Indian descent from Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago can be seen celebrating it.
An award-winning shot! You know why this ordinary picture of “a gas station in a snowfall” won the award? Because as it seems, maybe in the future, seeing a snowfall will be rare so we will have this picture as a record.
Only heartfelt smiles on their faces are making the picture extremely beautiful. This is an indigenous outpost where villagers enjoy a morning bath in the Brazilian Amazon. Well, the yellow- and red-footed tortoises in their hand will probably be eaten eventually.
This is what underwater rainforest looks like! A sun star beautifully clinging to tree kelp in an unpleasant cold at South Atlantic off the coast of Bird Island.
Monochromic images are those which consist only shades of grey are called grayscale or black-and-white in general. And, this running deer is a beautiful capture. Isn’t it?
Beauty in the reflection! Well, no more words for this picture. It's just beautiful.
This picture has such sharp edges that it if it was not known to have got a photo award, one may get confused by thinking this as a drawing. What say?
Aren't these pictures fantastic? No wonder these all are examples of great photography skills and each one tells a beautiful story.
We hope you enjoyed watching them! Also, if you want to share any other best pictures of 2018, please do comment.
