After the Blizzard | Photograph by Andrea Tomassetti (@an3atomassetti ) . “Usually from this point of view, you are able to see the Adriatic Sea behind the Rifugio Duca degli Abruzzi, and a lot of hikers rest here and admire the gorgeous panorama,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Andrea Tomassetti. “In winter after a strong blizzard, this icy spectacle is worth your frozen fingers.” — “Andrea, what a great perspective. I can feel the cold through the photo. I think my favorite part of this image is how it makes me feel. Choosing to photograph this scene with the vast landscape behind the house gives it a sense of place, wonderment and scale that leaves me wanting to know more. Great work.” — @natgeo Explorer Becca Skinner (@beccaskinner )

He writes, “I chose to capture my friend in it, to reflect the Emirati’s contemplations, visions and how he worked through the impossible to accomplish astonishing achievements standing up high today, reaching out the skies, presenting the culture in the past, the present and the future of Abu Dhabi in one frame and being witnessed by the entire world.” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on October 22, 2018. — Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads.

Photo by Kevin P (@kevinpollock1 ) // #Sponsored by @purenewzealand // #MyNewZealandStory // "Pauanui is a beautiful beach area on the North Island of New Zealand. You can catch a brilliant sunrise on almost any day," writes #YourShotPhotographer Kevin P. "While trying to catch a sunrise, I was joined on the beach by a lone paddleboarder. Sometimes the action isn't where you think it will be. The sunrise was great. This was even better." — This image was submitted to the #MyNewZealandStory hashtag challenge curated by National Geographic Photographer Erika Larsen (@erikalarsen888 ).

Golden Heights | Photograph by Katrin Bell (@katrinpbell ) . “Mike Boyd (@mikeboyyd ) walks this newly established 260m highline in Index, Washington,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Katrin Bell. “This line is currently the longest highline in Washington state. Established early September 2018, we began this day by hiking up to the line just before dawn. The location provided for spectacular views along with the gorgeous light.” This photo was selected for the October 19, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series. — “Wow, Katrin, this is just awesome!! I agree with #YourShotPhotographer Vanessa Hirsch (@vhirsch1 ) that it’s a cool shot, but I love her observation, ‘…how you incorporated the light and bokeh into this shot! It adds a magical feeling to the scene.” Bokeh can be really hard to pull off without being heavy-handed and this is the perfect balance of creative framing, great back light, and bokeh to make an intense moment almost feel like it is from a fairytale. I love it.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas )
Top Shot: For the Love of Cubs | Photograph by Giuseppe D'amico (@d_amico_giuseppe ) . #YourShotPhotographer Giuseppe D'amico spent hours observing this mother cheetah with her cubs in the Serengeti, Tanzania.

Always on alert and aware of the dangers.” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on October 19, 2018. — Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads.

Walk the Line | Photograph by Aidan Williams (@aidanwilliamsphoto ) . A slackliner walks a highline over Navagio Beach in Zakythos, Greece.

Fighting Fire | Photograph by Kyle Miller (@wyoming_hotshots ) . In Meeker, Colorado, two firefighters from a hot shot crew use a special tool to start a backfire.

Rain Room | Photograph by Neelima Azad (@neelimaazad ) . “The rain room allows you to walk through a downpour of continuous rain without actually getting wet,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Neelima Zad. “The motion sensors detect your movement so it rains all around you, unless you walk swiftly.” — “I agree with #YourShotPhotographer Carol Worrell (@carol_worr ) who commented, ‘This looks like something out of a science fiction movie. The flashes of bright light and silhouette creates a surreal atmosphere. Wonderfully captured Neelima.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee )
Blissful Morning | Photograph by Neelima Azad (@neelimaazad ) . “Early risers are awarded with great energy and opportunity. I was supposed to sleep like a log after traveling a great distance to this amazing resort in the desert. I decided to wake up early just so I could roam around and explore,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Neelima Zad. “I was in for a treat as the desert was covered in fog, and the lake close by had swans and this swan right here followed me wherever I moved. I set up my tripod and put it on timer, and ran and posed so I could forever cherish this morning.” — “I love #YourShotPhotographer Anoop Bhaskar (@colourbinge )’s comment: ‘A very much balanced image, I like the tones of colors from the left to the right when you see them diagonally. It’s like opening a box and seeing candies inside :) Love the composition and colour.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee )
