Swoosh | Photograph by Mark Laurence Dodge
.
“Winter is my favorite time to visit the coast along Northern California. The heavy weather and surf is incredibly dynamic,” writes Your Shot photographer Mark Laurence Dodge. “I love photographing waves. Waves are like snowflakes in that there are never two the same. They were really cranking this day. I was soaked from the rain.”

“Incredible. I have seen so many images of waves and surf submitted to this assignment; the unique and compelling way in which your composition and framing enables me to feel the might of the sea is unparalleled. I really feel intimated by the blue in the capture. Thank you.” — @natgeo Explorer and Creative Conservationist Asher Jay (@earthheiress).

Narrow Path to Church | Photograph by Georgijus Korobkovas (@benderis)
.
“Sunset at Abuna Yeamata Guh Church in Ethopia; this is one of the hardest accessible churches in Africa,” writes Your Shot photographer Georgijus Korobkovas. “To get there takes about one hour of very steep climbing, and at the end, about seven meters of free style climbing. Then a narrow path, on a cliff about 250 meters above the ground, leads to the church entrance where the priest stands.”
--
“This photo has great depth, composition, and beautiful light. I found myself wondering what had to have happened in order to capture this, so thank you for providing such great detail in your caption, Georgijus.” — @natgeoexpeditions Digital Media Specialist Lindsay Kuczera (@linkuczera). This photo was submitted to our “Off the Beaten Path” assignment, curated by Lindsay Kuczera and inspired by the transformative travel opportunities that @natgeo Expeditions offers.

Top Shot: Curious Enough | Photograph by Mohammad Murad (@moe_murad)

This Arabian red fox cub was very curious of Your Shot photographer Mohammad Murad and his camera. It got close enough that he was able to capture this image with his lens at a 105mm range. The Arabian red fox is know for their large ears, but their bodies are smaller than that of the red fox.

Wonder and Awe | Photograph by Tracey Jennings (@scubabunnie)
.
“In the shadows of Moalboal, a storm of sardines await,” writes Your Shot photographer Tracey Jennings. “The shoal was so immense that when overhead, it blocks out the sun. Even the most experienced diver can be awed by the sight.”

“Wow! This image really portrays the scale of a bait ball! To me, it deliberates the ocean’s abundance, and how much one human stands to take or set aside for the next generation. I think this composition offers remarkable insight into humanity’s relationship with the big blue!” — @natgeo Explorer and Creative Conservationist Asher Jay (@earthheiress).

Canoeing a Frozen Alaskan Lake | Photograph by Toby Harriman (@tobyharriman)
.
“Sometimes the best part of life is confronting a ‘Why?’ and then doing it just to see what becomes of it. That was this day, when my buddy Klye and I decided to fly out to Inner Lake George,” writes Your Shot photographer Toby Harriman. “Apparently awhile back, someone left a canoe, life jacket, and paddles around the lake for anyone to use (which I have to say is a very Alaskan thing to do). We found it, and made something special of it. It has definitely gone through some damage and duct tape repair, so paddle at your own risk if you go!”

Calcutta Flower Market | Photograph by Christina Buonomo (@buonomophotography)
.
“This man was just waking and setting up his chai tea stand when he stopped to take a rest,” writes Your Shot photographer Christina Buonomo. “His home serves as a tea shop during the day. There are people resting behind him, grasping those last few moments of sleep before they start their day as well. This man, to me, speaks volumes about ending poverty. He is clearly tired, but he has risen early to open up his shop and earn a living.”

Top Shot: Smile for the Camera | Photograph by Vinod Nicholas (@cormorant891)
.
“These beautiful delicate snakes are found in abundance in the rainforest of Agumbe,” writes Your Shot photographer Vinod Nicholas, who spotted this green vine snake while walking through the rainforest during a heavy down pour. “They are very hard to spot because they blend into their habitat, usually bushy vegetation. When they feel threatened they puff up giving them a green white checkered appearance.”
