Best Travel Photos of 2012 Twitter Competition: the shortlist

Recently we asked our Twitter followers at @lonelyplanet to share their Best Travel Photos of 2012 with us. We know our followers come from all corners of the world and like to visit the most varied destinations, and this was clearly reflected in the submissions to the contest. We had some truly inspiring entries, ranging from the Himalayan peaks to the backstreet of a South American metropolis. The jury is still deliberating on the winning entry, but we wanted to share the shortlist with you. In no particular order, here are the entries we've liked best:
