Thank you to all our amazing members for another fantastic year of beautiful nature images, if it were not for you there would be no NPN.

It has been an interesting year to say the least! An all new site with a new direction (but with the same core values), we have tripled membership since the change in ownership and continue to add new members every day. We have brought on a host of new contributors and will be adding many more this year.

For this years editors picks our moderators had the painful task of picking images from the old site and the new, I know it was an ardous task. A big shoutout to our moderators who make NPN great, please give them a huge thank you. We have asked members that had picks from the old site to repost these on the new site so members can still comment on them.

Without further ado, here are this years selections!
