Twenty seconds of silence | photograph by peter coskun (@petercoskunnaturephotography )
.
“a twenty second exposure as clouds and light move over the grand canyon and colorado river. i had waited years to visit this particular overlook as the timing just never seemed right, and was finally granted a permit to get a glimpse,” writes #yourshotphotographer peter coskun. “this location is one of two viewpoints where you are able to see the little colorado river meet the main colorado river. when looking closely, you can see the different colors in the muddy water which was likely due to recent summer flash floods. it was worth the wait.”

“this experience was definitely worth the wait — this moment is so beautiful peter. the colors are gorgeous. fantastic decision to shoot with a 20-second long exposure, helping create the epic feel to your frame. thanks for the details in your caption further explaining what i am looking at. your wait was well rewarded with this photo. i bet this photo looks awesome printed and framed big...” — @natgeoyourshot producer david y. lee (@davidylee )

“i like #yourshotphotographer srijita nandy's comment: "absolutely mesmerizing this is!! such a beautiful landscape with colours and textures to be observed. the use of light is also nice and the way in which you captured the shot really make me feel adventurous. waiting for more like this." — @natgeoyourshot producer david y. lee (@davidylee )

Challenging the ocean | photograph by francisco santos (@franciscosantos )
.
“this day i woke up at 5:30am with the feeling that this ‘secret’ spot would be nailing some sick waves and i should get some great shots. when i arrived, there were already three guys with their wetsuits on and ready to start swimming out,” writes #yourshotphotographer francisco santos. “so, i quickly put on my own wetsuit and followed them. the waves were too big and scary, but i managed to be at a safe point to shoot them. this wave in the photo it was the biggest one surfed that day! i was impressed by what my eyes had just seen!”

“this is a cool frame and requires a second look. immediately, i love the subject matter. perfect timing as the surfer begins to fall down the wave. beautiful colours and i love the spray flying off the crest of the wave. i also love the point of view you have shot the picture from francisco. i feel like i am in the water and on a surf board too! great job. ‘wow! what an adventure!’” — @natgeo photographer robbie shone (@shonephoto )

On the run | photograph by thomas szajner
.
“yellowstone, what a place… as if on cue, a distant movement jarred me back to a stunning reality. about a football field away, my eyes latched on three shapes desperately running through deep snow,” writes #yourshotphotographer thomas szajner. “a magnificent bull elk was using all of its natural strength to distant himself from two very hungry and experienced elk hunting wolves. twice each wolf was able to stop this bull, and each time the bull was able to free himself and resume his run. the wolves followed and so did i.”

“great action shot of predatory pursuit, and epic framing of the wolf within antlers! this begs us the myth, ‘wolves k**l for sport.’ truth is, wolves were brutally exterminated from the continental us based on the myth of a ravenous, cruel wolf that exercises its predatory lust on a whim and at will. but reliable science tells us that most hunts fail and starvation and injuries are common for wolves — and without them nature's balance is disturbed and ecosystems suffer.” — @natgeo explorer and creative conservationist asher jay (@earthheiress )
