Ready. Sunset. Go.

An African lioness rests in the rosy light of the setting sun in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Lionesses are the primary hunters of their pride, doing so usually at dawn, dusk, or night; however, some lions in the Okavango Delta have adapted to hunting during the day, timing their meals to the movement of the herds of Cape buffalo that also live there.

An impressive cloud formation passes over the Mesquite sand dunes in Death Valley National Park. I’ve been lucky to get some pretty interesting conditions the few times I’ve been to this area. One of my favorite things I’ve done in the wilderness, is to be comfortably settled into the nice soft sand, watching weather move through the valley. Such a cool place.

The crossing

A camera trap catches two moose crossing Ealue Lake in northwestern British Columbia, Canada. National Geographic Explorer Paul Colangelo set up the camera on a land bridge between the lake and a fen, where wildlife frequently pass.

“In the three weeks that the camera was set, it captured images of about 12 moose, two wolves, and a grizzly. On the morning both of these shots were taken, I was actually canoeing back to the spot to take down the trap,” he says. “While I was canoeing through the mist you see in the background, I saw the flashes pop and two moose trot away. Had I left five minutes earlier, I would have botched the two best shots!”

Colangelo’s camera trap was part of the Sacred Headwaters project, a five-year effort to document a largely unknown wilderness area in northern British Columbia before gas and mining projects change the area forever. The efforts to protect the region resulted in the permanent ban of oil and gas exploration in the Sacred Headwaters

Your Shot contributor George Hodan says he was in the right place at the right time for this shot of a mud-covered boat sitting at the bottom of a drained dam in the Czech Republic. “I was on holiday in Brno,” he says. “It was such an interesting view that I didn’t hesitate, and I took the shot immediately.”

While walking through the forest for a lot of hours and days I tried to find a way to bring the tiny things in those area to live much more. Sometimes the tiny things have so much power, beauty and awsomeness but still they are overseen by a lot of people.
With this series I want to give mushrooms a stage to show there whole beauty and elegance.
