Exploring Time: Savannah Dusk | Photograph by Mattieu Rivart (@matthieu.rivart.official)

“Photographs have a special relationship with time. The very process of making an image involves time exposures of shorter or longer durations – and the end result is a moment of time,” writes @natgeo photographers Diane Cook and Len Jenshel (@cookjenshel). “For our Your Shot assignment we want you to delve into describing the idea or concept of time. We are looking for images that encapsulate time, defining what a particular hour of the day looks like, tells a story about time, or captures a moment of time that clearly shows what life looks like at - say midnight, or 5:00AM, or noon. With clarity, coherence, and a point of view, show us a segment of life that defines a specific time, in the cycle of a 24-hour day.
.
The goal of this assignment is to publish a final story, with a full 24 hours in the life of our Your Shot community. What moment, scene, or activity tells us what a particular hour of the day look like? How do you frame it, what details are important to include?”

Another World | Photograph by Alexander Brown
.
“[Before] packing my things to go film the whales in Tonga, and before returning home to Europe after an epic three-year trip around the world; I had one last thing to do: hike Tongariro National Park in mid-winter,” writes Your Shot photographer Alexander Brown. “I wanted to camp under the stars, and photograph my tent with one of the volcanoes and Milky Way in the frame. It was cold, below 15 degrees that night. But my partner and I kept warm in this little tent we set up on the South Crater Lake.”

“Lovely! Nice mood and simplicity, but technically well executed.” — @natgeo photographer Charlie Hamilton James (@chamiltonjames) #YourShotPhotographer

Unsung Hero: My Cousin Gabe | Photograph by Rex Jones (@rexjonesphoto)
.
“Without arms or legs, my cousin Gabe Adams (@no_limbs_) has already accomplished more than what most people ever will,” writes Your Shot photographer Rex Jones. “As a motivational speaker, he talks about excelling without limits, and how he has continued to achieve his goals with arms or legs. I wanted to photograph him in a location that portrayed him in a place where most people would not expect him to be, to visually emphasize his overall message of not letting a handicap stop him.”

Inspired by the @natgeochannel series, “The Long Road Home,” that relives the ferocious ambush the American First Cavalry Division endured in Sadr City, Iraq in 2004, @natgeoyourshot is launching a new assignment called “Unsung Hero,” curated by @natgeo photographer Matt Moyer (@mattmoyerphoto). Matt is inviting you to share who is your hero, and more importantly, why? Who lifts you up, inspires you, protects you, even saves you?

Lovely Family Trip | Photograph by Ritagnik Bhattacharya
.
“We traveled four hours through the rough terrains of Nelliyampathy in Kerala, and on our way, we stopped at the hill top to appreciate the beauty of nature and hills,” writes Your Shot photographer Ritagnik Bhattacharya. “As my grandmother enjoyed the view from the jeep, my mother looked the other direction where my uncle and our driver took in the scenery and the calmness of the place. What a lovely trip it was.”

“Beautiful example of layering and a complex composition. Love it!” — @natgeo photographer Matt Moyer (@mattmoyer). This photo was submitted to our “Quest for Happiness” assignment, curated by @natgeo photographer Matthieu Paley (@paleyphoto); he is asking you to photograph what makes a community happy — the ecosystem of happiness.

Top Shot: Light Show | Photograph by Marc Harris (@harriswildlife)
.
“From a recent trip to one of my favorite places to shoot. The town of Pine Island, Florida,” writes Your Shot photographer Marc Harris. “Upon arrival very early, I noticed a small thunderhead forming and grabbed my gear to scurry to an opening in hopes of getting a few shots. I had just enough time to set up, compose, choose settings and get off the first 15 sec exposure started. The thunderhead dissipated almost as quickly as it formed.”
