Ten Years of Photo of the Day as presented by: National Geographic

Photo of the Day debuted on April 21, 2001, with this photograph of a Pygmy family setting out for a fishing trip in a flooded forest in the Congo. Celebrate ten years of daily National Geographic photos with this anniversary gallery featuring one picture from each year chosen by our editors.
