75 Mind Blowing Pictures to End 2013

Someone sent me an email that had this list of 75 of the most amazing pictures I’ve ever seen.  I searched and figured out they were from Twisted Sifter who curates a list of the coolest images they find. At the end of every quarter the Sifter highlights the top 25 ‘Pictures of the Day‘, culminating in an epic Top 100 at the end of the year.  Please check out their pictures below and visit their website to see past collections.
