The National Geographic Magazine has just released the issues of best pictures in September 2011 with interesting comments of profound people. Here is the full list of most favorable pictures including a fantastic shot of surging waves Typhoon Roke caused in Japan.
One of the best images last month, September 2011 is the stunning picture of surging waves caused by Typhoon Roke hit the breakwater in Udono in the Japanese port town of Kiho, Mie Prefecture on September 21. The powerful typhoon with heavy rain and strong winds left at least 16 people dead or missing and over a million people evacuated. Luckily, Typhoon Roke did not have a major impact on the tsunami-crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.
Chris Combs, news photo editor shared: "I'm glad for the photographer that this appears to have been shot from a great distance"
Another best image of September 2011 is about a red-billed oxpecker on the patterned hide of a giraffe. Interestingly, the world's tallest mammals giraffes can reach heights of up to 19 feet (6 meters) and can run as fast as 35 miles (56 kilometers) an hour. By not showing more of the giraffe, the viewers are forced to think a little bit harder about what it is they're actually seeing.

It is happy to know the 2011 cranberry crop is forecast to be up 20 percent from 2010 and may also produce the second largest production on record. "The linear nature of this photo and the dark reflection of clouds in the waterway at the top of the frame flatten the picture into an abstract image, broken only by the moving cranberries." Sarah Polger, senior photo editor said.
