IBTimes Art & Design has selected 10 truly amazing photos from the month of June. From Nasa to Michael Phelps, and from the lunar eclipse to the Gasu desert, we applaud the photographers who, through their camera lens, share the world with us. 

From an artist's impression of a growing supermassive black hole to a devotee covered in mud and dried leaves, photographers have captured current events with the art of photography. Whether it's the stroke of Michael Phelps as he warms up before a race, or fireworks exploding over the Yenisei River, we marvel at the images that give a rare glimpse into the world that surrounds us.
