Saw this round up on Slate last week and thought it worth sharing.
Some really awesome shots here:

Some really amazing photographs here. To be honest this just reminded me what a really quite terrible year 2014 was, in terms of world news, at least. Just horrible event after horrible event, many of which aren’t over but have fallen out of the news.

[quote-0]So 2014’s almost done, and unless you got married, or had your firstborn, or won a Subaru filled with Maltesers in a radio phone-in, it’s unlikely to be a year you’ll remember fondly. It was filled with huge, grim events. So is every year, of course, but in 2014 it seemed there were fewer light moments to offset the enveloping dread. And everyone seemed angry, all the time. A whole planet, gritting its teeth. Hundreds protesting. Thousands marching. Millions waiting to attach their internalised rage to a hashtag at a moment’s notice. We could all use a lie-down over Christmas.[/quote-0]
