The booming sounds only add to the desolate beauty of the dunes, the tallest in California.

Close encounter

While diving in the Galápagos Islands, Sandro Lonardi took a break between dives to snorkel with sea lions. “At first they were all on the island, but slowly they entered the water and started to play with us,” says the Your Shot member. “They were a bit shy, but as I started to imitate them, they become more familiar and started to get closer and closer. It was a great moment.”

By repeatedly clicking the shutter, I coaxed the ever curious cubs forward.”
