Published in NGM-March Evergreens

For the March issue of National Geographic, we had the opportunity to publish four additional photos from our Your Shot community. The photos had been living in my folder of Your Shot favorites that had gone unpublished for various reasons—including layout conflicts and advertising needs—and were deemed as “evergreens.” If you’re familiar with publishing, then you may have heard this term. We use it to describe pages that are made and put through the workflow process as if for publication, then held in a bank until needed. The March edition needed two extra pages, so we were able to publish the four photos below. I can honestly say I might be as happy as the photographers to see these beauties in NGM. Congratulations!

While Adami was visiting his grandmother in western Estonia, he went for a walk in a forest, where he collected mushrooms, leaves, and berries. Then he arranged them on a wooden floor to take a portrait of fall.
Tran The, an occasional sports photographer, captured this midair twist at a diving competition in Hanoi. This particular athlete won a gold medal.

Lesica stopped on New York’s Williamsburg Bridge to point his camera into a viewing box containing several pieces of multicolored glass. He captured part of the Manhattan skyline, including the Empire State Building.

To photograph wild horses in the Krug Mountains in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tafra went with a guide who knew the area. They slowly approached a group of horses at a watering hole and also this pair on a hill.
