Every day, National Geographic Travel selects its favourite travel photo submission to create a daily photo feature of beautiful images from around the globe. The standard of the photography is unrivalled – from a diver swimming in a sea of jellyfish and a surfer riding a wave in Tahiti, to San Galgano Abbey in Tuscany and a Kyrgyz wedding in Afghanistan – and the variety of photos extensive.

National Geographic has taken a look back at the past year in photos and picked its favourites. Here are 10 to whet your appetite – but you’ll have to visit the site to see the whole set.
