Photo by @marcograssiphotography | The day I learned my lesson about lenticular clouds: They’re beautiful, but they’re better when experienced from the ground, as they indicate the presence of high winds. As I was flying and shooting the west face of Mount Fitz Roy in Patagonia, the turbulence was pretty strong and, with all those ups and downs, it was even more challenging than usual to frame the subject. However, I must confess that this view was a great distraction from the bumps! #yourshotphotographer

Photo by @victorlimaphoto | Watching sunrise and sunset by Pehoe Lake in Torres del Paine National Park is always a sight. In this image, two small lenticular clouds give a particular touch to the already impressive landscape of the place. This type of cloud is very common throughout Chilean Patagonia. #yourshotphotographer

Photo by @amysacka | How do you make a lighthouse interesting? We've see them over and over, the images of these beautiful structures on postcards and touristy images. I drove into this park in Tawas, Michigan late at night, knowing there would not be much light. I turned my headlights onto the gate, which created these beautiful shadows leading to the lighthouse. I believe it enabled me to see this lighthouse anew. #YourShotPhotographer

Photo by @ivan_lesica | I captured this photograph while vacationing in Croatia, on the island of Krk. After cutting some grapevines I left the clippers on the patio table and went into the house. When I came out I noticed a beautiful butterfly on them. As I got closer the butterfly did not fly away, so I got my camera and carefully lifted the clipper with my left hand while photographing with my right. The butterfly positioned itself right in between the blades just long enough for me to take two photos, with this one being the better of the two. To capture some great moments in love one needs to think and act fast. SONY HX1, f/3.2, 7.10mm, ISO 125, 1/50s

Photo by @zhuxiaophotography | The golden hour at Russia’s Altay Mountains. The mist was rising above the water surface while I waited in the wild. This was my second visit to this amazing region. In Altay, you can experience all kinds of natural landscapes in Russia, such as snowy mountains, lakes, and grasslands. It was renowned in the name Siberian Alps and sometimes was even called Russia’s Tibet. The Altay Mountains are some of the most magnificent mountains in Asia. They cross the borders of China, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Russia, extending more than 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles) from northwest to southeast. #YourShotPhotographer

Photo by @James.Rushforth | Having recently finished reading Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” series, a visit to Raufarhöfn, one of Iceland’s most northerly villages, seemed apt, especially given that it’s aurora borealis season. This gateway makes up one of four such archways orientated to face the compass points at Heimskautsgerðið, or Arctic Henge. This shot was taken looking northeast during a spectacular display of the northern lights; the unusual purple hue is caused by solar particles reacting with nitrogen lower in the atmosphere than is usually seen.
When the aurora is dancing across the sky, a faster shutter speed than you would typically use for astrophotography is recommended to keep the lights sharp. Image shot at 20mm, 10s at f/1.8, ISO 4000. #yourshotphotographer #Iceland #aurora_borealis #northern_lights

Photo by @marcograssiphotography | The power of Fossá, the biggest waterfall in the Faroe Islands.
After days of dry weather, we had a night of heavy rain. The next morning, as we were driving to this location, the landscape was transformed and hundreds of small waterfalls were flowing all around.
It’s incredible to see how the weather, water, and wind in particular, shape this little archipelago and how everything around changes depending on it. #YourShotPhotographer
