After the Snowfall

Your Shot member Veronika Pekkerne Toth captured this shot the day after an all-day snowfall. “On this morning the weather was better already, but changing: clouds coming and going, sometimes snowing, or with a sun peeking out,” she writes. “The Grand Canyon is always awe-inspiring, but with all this light and shadow, with the misty clouds, and with the snow cover on the top of the cliffs looking like powered sugar on some cakes, it was just beyond my imagination.”

Pekkerne Toth’s picture recently appeared in the Your Shot assignment Nature in Black and White.

Marmot Watch

“This photo was taken during a 100-kilometer [62-mile] trekking trip in Ladakh, India, at an altitude of 4,500 meters [14,763 feet],” writes Your Shot member Sebastian Wahlhuetter. “I was at Lake Tso Kar, one of the highest saltwater lakes on Earth. I [had been] watching the marmots for a couple of days, and I was wondering if I might be able to get a close-up shot from a very short distance, covering not only the animal but also the stunning environment these creatures were living in. It took me one desperate evening and a very successful morning for the final outcome. With literally hundreds of holes it was quite a task of observation to figure out where these animals would eventually appear next.”

Scenic Route

Climber Emily Harrington takes the hard way up southern China’s Moon Hill, an arch from the remains of a collapsed cave. Sightseers have an easier option: a paved walkway to a viewpoint beneath the arch, then a dirt path to the top.

Light at the Museum

“When I shoot street photography, I’m always looking for interesting light, juxtapositions, and emotions that will make a good picture,” says Your Shot member Jason Maloney. “I was drawn to the background in this photo, as it is a well-known piece of Denver on the outside of the Denver Art Museum.”

Maloney says the sliver of light looked very dynamic. “I felt it would make a great photo. I wanted to wait for just the right moment, though, and after a few passersby and groups of people, I saw this single man walking along.”

Maloney’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

Growing Grouper

This ten-inch-long juvenile goliath grouper in the Florida Keys may spend five years among mangroves, relatively safe from predators, before venturing out to the reefs. The species’ survival depends on mangrove forests, which are contending with coastal development.

A Fragile Livelihood

In this picture from the July 2014 issue of National Geographic magazine, a girl tends goats in the mountains near Shiikh in the Somaliland region of Somalia. Though big farms make headlines—a subject explored as part of our Future of Food series—small farmers still produce most of the food in Africa. Both are crucial for the continent to be able to feed its own growing population—much less the rest of the world.
