Through a Glass, Colorfully

“I love walking around my beloved New York City armed with my camera, looking for different and interesting subjects to photograph,” says Your Shot member Ivan Lesica. “On this day, I was walking over the Williamsburg Bridge that connects Brooklyn with Manhattan. Halfway over the bridge I noticed a handmade wooden box painted in bright yellow, with openings in the front and back. I looked through it and noticed that the inside walls were covered with pieces of white, orange, and blue glass.” Lesica noticed the reflection of the Empire State Building in some of the pieces and took the picture through the opening in the box. “It’s my favorite shot of New York City to date.”

Crying Wolves

“Wolves are especially hard to photograph in the wild,” writes Petra Warner, a member of National Geographic Your Shot. “This picture was taken at Wolf Park in Indiana, a wildlife and research facility primarily focused on wolves but also on foxes, coyotes, and bison. Not only do they do a wonderful job with wildlife conservation, but they also increase awareness via education and photo workshops.”

While attending one of the photo workshops, Warner had the opportunity to see the animals up close. “I specifically chose a winter’s day so that the timber wolves would stand out against the snow, and one howl from a staff member sent this group of wolves a-howling—and thus this picture.”

Cave Inn

“After two days of trekking and caving, we reached the first camp inside Hang Son Doong [mountain river cave], the world’s largest cave,” writes Your Shot contributor Ryan Deboodt. “The entire way, I was in awe of the scene unfolding in front of me. The atmosphere created by the clouds entering the cave from the first doline (opening in the cave ceiling) was surreal. I couldn’t get over the fact that we would be camping at this most unique location and wanted to capture the feeling of having this at your doorstep.”

The 2.5-mile cave is located in Vietnam’s Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, near the border with Laos.

Study Hall

“As a local born and raised in Beijing, I love to capture the historical moments that arise in the capital city,” says Your Shot contributor Tian-yu Xiong. “This photograph was taken in the National Library of China, which resides in the middle of Haidian, also known as the educational district of Beijing. As I was wandering the hallways of the library I noticed the astonishing view and repetitive lines present in the architecture. The massive amount of people reading books and studying quietly with electronic devices by their sides also drew my attention to this stunning moment.”

Salt of the Earth

“At 3,650 meters above sea level, in the Bolivian Altiplano, there exists the largest continual salt desert on our planet, with a surface extending 4,085 square miles,” writes Dany Krom, a member of our Your Shot community. “In it, men work to extract salt, lithium, and borax while having to adapt to the climate adversities and life conditions.”

The Place of Jade

Beech boughs and a broadleaf sapling overhang Lake Ada on Milford Track, a popular hiking trail in southwestern New Zealand’s Te Wahipounamu—the place of jade—a World Heritage area that includes four national parks within which stand the country’s highest mountains, longest glaciers, and tallest forests.
