“That day was a dual lucky day,” says Your Shot contributor Steven Chou, who captured this shot of a “delicacy in the air” while walking around the ancient camp at Ejin Banner, Inner Mongolia, in the hinterland of Badain Jaran Desert. Chou had finished taking sunrise shots of the ruins of the camp and, on seeing the formation, switched to a wide-angle lens to capture the cloud and towers in one shot.
During the shoot, Chou learned that it pays to linger. “Don’t leave in such a hurry after you’ve done your main work,” he says. “Take a walk a little bit farther and try a cool new perspective—that’s when you’ll probably get your ‘wow’ shots.”
