Stilts? 

Your Shot photographer Mike Korostelev captured this action-packed close-up of a walrus, its back against a breaking wave, in Cape Vankarem in Chukotka, Russia. “Every autumn walruses swim to this rookery,” Korostelev writes. “One day, walking along the beach away from the rookery, I came across a lone walrus … sleeping on the shore, its tusks [stuck] in the sand. I carefully crept up to it and photographed it with a wide-angle lens.”

The colours of Autumn

This photo was taken during autumn in Hameln, Germany, which is the birthplace of the infamous Rattenfänger—or Pied Piper, as we Americans know it. This shot is actually on top of the last few hills that soon sink into the state of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony). This area is essentially lowland plains—hence the name Lower Saxony!
