Sand wave


Your Shot photographer Danny Sepkowski admits that setting up his camera on a shore break is “not the safest thing to do.” But he got this incredible shot of sand being sucked up into a wave by photographing with a 100mm lens. “Shooting with a macro lens has taught me patience and composition as well,” he says. “The detail that this lens has is next level, and so are the beatings that I take with it!”

Moonlight

“Seeking serenity, a young family decides to hike the mesquite dunes of Death Valley avoiding both the heat and the crowds of the day”, said Your Shot photographer Sapna Reddy on her submission to the Minimalism assignment on Your Shot. “The tones and the textures of the shifting sand dunes under the moonlight, a silent testimony to the beauty of the barren; colors and complexity swept away under the blanket of darkness.”

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.”

Even though the world sometimes seems pointless and dark you eventually will hit some light ~ true story!
I’ve been struggling with my landscapes since I came back from Iceland. The lack of time and interesting scenes have been frustrating because my enthusiasm for landscapes and fine art has never been bigger than it is right now. It was so good to get out during easter and travel to the northern part of Denmark, where we have this huge dune called Råbjerg Mile. I made up this shot on the go, when I saw how the clouds were forming – very moody! Good to finally get something I really feel good about from my own country

Soft sand

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.

A local gets airborne as he hits the breaking waves with his skimboard at the Barangay Urbiztondo beach in San Juan, La Union, Philippines, dubbed the north’s surfing capital,” writes Richard Balonglong, a member of National Geographic Your Shot. “This coming summer, tourists once again are expected to flock beach resorts to unwind.
