An adult elephant and a calf try to cross railroad tracks in West Bengal. The image won a certificate of merit in the 2018 Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards.

  • Science and nature provide some of the most compelling photography subjects, both on and off Earth.
  • The staff of Business Insider and Insider rounded up some of our favorite pictures from 2018.
  • The images we picked show elephants under threat, hurricanes from space, individual atoms, face transplants, spacecraft selfies, and more.

Reporters and editors at Business Insider and Insider see, analyze, and write about thousands of stunning science and nature photos every year.

Some pictures tell stories and reveal truths stronger than words could, occasionally inspiring enough minds or wrenching enough hearts to change the course of history. Other images hide amazing secrets that beg to be shown, explained, and demystified.

The best images force us to reconsider how we think the world works and looks (and are also visually arresting, of course). Such shots often show a feat or a discovery, but they can also underscore the scope and reality of ongoing or looming disasters.

As we speed toward the New Year, we rounded up some of our favorite photos of 2018. Take a look.
