National Geographic is one of the most well-known and respected photography magazines. It has remained an important staple in the world of photojournalism since its inception, and continues to provide inspiring photographs of not just wildlife, but of everything the world over. The magazine is especially picky about the material it selects for publication, which has resulted in a large National Geographic archive of unpublished photographs.

In 2013, however, National Geographic began revealing some of these never-before-seen pictures to the public. Some are quite spectacular. Although it seems there’s an ever-expanding collection of photos being released, here are some of our personal favorites from the National Geographic archive. Which is your favorite? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to SHARE these amazing photos with your friends!
