Alaskan Air

“It is hard to ascend a mountain but it is worth it when you see views from the top and enjoy descending,” writes Your Shot member Saku Okamoto, who captured this image while on a winter expedition to Alaska’s backcountry.

The Pinnacle

“We were near the summit of Sgurr Dearg, [also called] the Inaccessible Pinnacle, a famous feature of the Cuillin Ridge on Scotland’s Isle of Skye, shooting a behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of 'The Ridge,’” writes Chris Prescott of the Cut Media short film featuring trials cyclist Danny MacAskill.

After the Rain

“It rained during the second evening of our jeep tour of the Bolivian salt desert,” writes Your Shot member Guy Nesher. “The next day we discovered that the ground had turned into an almost perfect mirror due to a thin layer of water that accumulated on it overnight. It was breathtaking. Initially I tried to shoot the empty desert, but the lack of any distinct features made the photos quite boring. I soon realized that my best bet was the other jeeps traveling beside us.”

A Perilous Profession

In April 2014, a devastating avalanche killed 16 expedition workers on Mount Everest, becoming the worst accident in the peak’s hundred-year climbing history. For the Sherpas—13 of whom were victims of the avalanche—the climbing profession brings both prosperity and peril. Here, Da Nuru Sherpa coils rope at Camp II on Ama Dablam, perched like a spectacular bird’s nest at 19,600 feet.

Fiery Flyby

Every Icelander has watched this from the day that the earthquakes under the Bárðarbunga volcano on the Vatnajökull glacier started,” writes Your Shot member Baldur Sveinsson, a retired teacher who’s been photographing aircraft for the past 40 years, the most exciting part of which, he says, is photographing from another aircraft. “A pilot friend of mine wanted to have a look at the eruption, which is about an hour from Reykjavík. We weren’t able to find any other aircraft to accompany us but decided to go anyway, as there are almost always some in the vicinity for sightseeing. We found one doing its passes from north to south. It’s at least 300 meters [984 feet] in front of the lava spout.”

A Phantom Lake

Members of a British-led expedition pause at a subterranean lake on the way to Titan Chamber in southern Guizhou Province, where it rains more than 50 inches a year. The lake appears and disappears as the rains come and go.

Claustral Canyon, Australia

Veteran guide John Robens (at far left) leads a soggy team through a moss-covered passage in Claustral Canyon, a few hours' hike from their exit point. Canyoneering is all about the serendipity of discovery, he says. "You walk for miles and suddenly you find yourself in this magical spot."

Slackline, Rio de Janeiro
