Chosen as the best. It’s an honor, fleeting at times, yet important. At KHT, we’re always striving for “best” – best solution to you PIA (pain in the @%$) Jobs!, best response time, best delivery, best product performance – and on and on. We, like most of you, pride ourselves on striving to be the best, then resetting the bar.
Every year National Geographic invites travelers from around the world to submit photographs from their adventures – and, wow they are amazing. Each selected image has a backstory, on where it was taken and how it happened. We thought we’d share some of our favorites, and also provide you the links to explore on your own. Enjoy, and thanks to Nat Geo for these awesome “bests” – we salute you, the judges and all the winners.
