Fleeting Sheep

February 18

“I saw this herd of sheep while driving in the mountains outside the town of Al Bahah during a photography trip to Saudi Arabia,” says Arshad Syed, a member of National Geographic Your Shot. “The light was parallel to the slope, and the white sheep were glowing.”

Syed had stopped the car and, not wanting to lose time retrieving his tripod from the trunk, rested his camera on the car’s hood and zoomed in to fill the frame. “I looked at the camera to see the result, and when I went to take a few more pictures, the herd had disappeared,” he says. “It was an irresistible moment to capture—it looked like a cave drawing.”
