Brilliant Photos Taken on Photographic Trips

Friday, May 18th, 2012

The world is your oyster. If launching yourself over an angry waterfall is what floats your canoe, then by all means paddle on! If climbing 70 feet above ground-level on a sheer cliff face is your idea of a good time, then climb away! Whatever crazy-ass adventure you decide to go on, just remember one thing. Pack a camera! Each destination has its very own unique appeal, and therefore has the opportunity to transform itself into one of those photographic trips. National Geographic has an 'Extreme Photo of the Week' section on their website, and the submissions are so great, they make that big wall in China look like a Japanese room divider.

10 Extreme Photos from Photographic Trips:

Just because you've got a camera and a buddy that's up for anything doesn't mean you should book the very last airline tickets you'll ever book for him, and go off trying to capture an insane shot like these photographers have. Rather start small. Start with taking photos at family events, then move on to photographic trips to Africa and one day you'll be ready to tackle higher, riskier, scarier terrain...

National Geographic has put the graphic back into their name, posting an ‘Extreme Photo of the Week’ on their website for all to see, drool over and wish they were somewhere else other than sitting in front of their PC.

Check out these gnarly photographs:

On Facebook, we seriously have the most awesome friends. They’re a bunch of down-to-earth, life-loving creatures with mad photo capturing skills. I came across the most beautiful photos taken in Africa and, with the capturer’s permission, have decided to share these moments with you. Inspired by Jojo Ellensohn’s photo album, check out the collection of African skies taken by our Facebook friendlings:
