My 5 Pics for the 2010 National Geographic Photo Contest

National Geographic has opened a contest for the best amateur photographs of 2010. Winners will be published in the magazine! The contest is open until November 30, and you can submit an unlimited amount of photos.

I have already submitted five, and may add a few more closer to the deadline. A special thank you to Leigh Duncan Durst, who brought the contest to my attention and encouraged me to enter. Choosing the photos was not easy, as I have some popular ones that had a blemish or were not technically proficient enough (IMO) to win. Here are my five:

The Devil’s Horns Across Lago Pehoe (Chilean Patagonia)
