It's impossible to include all of the best photos of 2012 in one gallery, but these images offer a fantastic glimpse of the year in pictures.

HuffPost photo editors curated a slideshow of serious eye candy from Getty Images and the Associated Press.


The subjects are as varied as the emotions that these photos evoke. The gallery includes dazzling pictures from space, intimate portraits, funny moments with world leaders and heart-wrenching scenes of loss. The one thing that they all have in common is their power to convey what mere words cannot.

This summer, HuffPost Arts and Culture ran a gallery of amazing photos from the first half of the year, which was posted to one of Reddit's photography forums.
