  • Kyrgyz Hunter

    High up in the Kyrgyz mountains, the almost extinct eagle hunters are found. The eagles are captured as hatchlings and are trained to hunt. Once a bond forms with the eagle’s handler, the bond lasts forever.

  • Mystical Light in Magical Machu Picchu

    After a hard and demanding five-day trek to this wonder, we rested our weary legs while patiently waiting for the clouds to part and the sun's rays to hit the sweet spot in the center of the ceremonial palace. We were not disappointed; we were greeted with some magical light. Just Divine. Photo and caption by <a href="http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/profile/33456/" target="external">Kannan V.</a>

  • Golden Gate Crossings

    I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to take a "tower tour" of the Golden Gate Bridge south tower. Just as I was about to take the long elevator ride back down, I saw an approaching cargo ship and I quickly set up my tripod for what was my very last shot atop the iconic bridge.

  • Lightning at Horseshoe

    I've got several lightning shots at horseshoe bend while I traveled this canyon last time but this is the image I liked most. The reason why I like [this image] is because the lightning has a solid line and I can…see the lightning hitting the hill and it [is] also reflected in the water. It's just amazing and beautiful. In addition, I can see the actual movement of the storm in the picture that makes this scene alive.

  • Dressed for Adventure

    While shooting the majestic Southern Stingray in the crystal clear water of the Sandbar in Grand Cayman, I was stunned when this newlywed couple arrived. The bride was still in her wedding dress! This shot…for me captures the beginning of a new life together, one where a couple will brave the troubles of the world hand in hand.
