Best Stock Photos of 2012

Submitted by gratuit on 31 December, 2012 - 15:16

Lots of excellent images were uploaded to freeimageslive this year making it hard to whittle down the selection to the 25 we've included in this post. The images here were selected for several reasons, technical merit, usefulness as stock photos, and in some cases just an emotional response they generated.

We'd like to thank all those who uploaded images this year, and wish everyone all the best for 2013!

Inspirations comes along with the Photographs at the break of Dawn

Submitted by snerfu on 15 December, 2012 - 18:18

I like to start everyday with some pictures. Of course every photographer's favorite is the sunrise. I would like to share with you the kind of moving ideas that spurred my photography to greater heights.

Colors: Whenever I see colors, I get so excited, I reach for the camera! Most of the people pause to watch a sunrise or the colors of the sunset without knowing why or even caring. It is one beautiful thing that will always be there, for you and me and for the curious photographer.

thanks to all those who have shared their images.
