Only if grabbing a pen could make you a writer or holding a pro camera could make you a photographer, life would have been very easy. But alas, it is not easy like that, it is more like biting stones in the mouth because not always a writer can write without a spur, he needs a heavenly muse to evoke him, to stir and stimulate his thinking capacities and out from the dark comes the light consequently.
Likewise with a photographer it is never easy to capture the candid shots. Only reading the menu guide of the DSLR could never help you enough to get the best shots on the camera lenses. You really have to pick the right places, set the right angles, choose the right objects/subjects, hold the camera like a pro and capture the magic on the screen. It is never too easy.
You never know what a professional photographer goes through just to seize the lifelike, beyond imagination kinds of thing. In the forest, onto the mountain’s peak, beside the flowing river to the ocean depth, from the tunnels to the cloud nine, from the deep ditches to the shallow living, they capture anything and everything.
Only capturing people or the places is not what we call exceptional. Seizing the impossible on the screen is the job of a professional photographer. Holding his breath, placing camera under the water, doing wildlife photography is more like beating the lion in his den. It is more like playing with sharks for hours and hours, it is more like riding on the back of a dinosaur and you never know when it is going to toss you upside down and spin you from the south to the North Pole.
Life is all about taking risks with a manly spirit and one who does it well is actually called a successful person no matter what profession he opts. Today I have arranged a post of top 20 most favorite National Geographic photos of 2015 that are not only stunners but breathe shaking and nerve breaking.
Who could take such beyond real shots? Do let us know how you did like the efforts of the photographers behind these, who did an inspiring job. Surely they are dare devils who can do anything and everything to create magic into photos and make them masterpieces for the beholders.
