Between the lines

Mist surrounds the jagged edges of flysch on the Basque Coast in Spain. Flysch alternates thin and coarse layers of sediment, making for a dramatic landscape. But Your Shot photographer Fran Llano writes that the view is more than just aesthetic, it’s informational. “Layer by layer,” he says, “the rocks offer a unique vision of the geological features of this area, reading a rocky book full of information.”

Misty mountains

Your Shot photographer Karsten Hoenack says that he was “totally overwhelmed” by the beauty of this mountain chain in Coahuila, Mexico. “Mexico is one of those countries which surprises you around every corner,” he says. After this sight, he remembers, “Minutes later Monterrey City appeared. Fantastic how close to a big city such a beautiful landscape can be.”

Painted park

A heavy mist rolls over Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park in East Java, Indonesia, temporarily turning the park into something more closely resembling a watercolor painting. Mount Semeru, the peak that gives the park a portion of its name, is the highest in Java at more than 12,000 feet. Bromo is in reference to Mount Bromo, the most popular mountain in the region, and the Tengger people who live there.
