National Geographic has released its highly anticipated annual list of ‘Best Photographs’  for 2016, and ‘Dressed for Mars,’ an image by Phillip Toledano, of space engineer Pablo de León testing a prototype space suit at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, made the cut.

From wildlife to wars, nature to people, cultures to practices, they make it their mission to document everything worth seeing. The effort that goes into doing so is evident in the breathtaking and unparalleled final results.

Sometimes, taking a desired photograph can take months of planning, research and travelling while braving extreme climate conditions, hostile environments and dangerous risks.

This esteemed list has been curated (and shortlisted) from 91 photographers, 107 stories, and 2,290,225 photographs. Every image has a story to tell.
