“Mike Boyd (@mikeboyyd

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
