Fantastic Falls | Photograph by Kai Hornung (@kaihornung ) . People living near the Bruarfoss waterfalls in Iceland were so tired of tourists crowding the area that they closed it off to traffic.

My Time | Photograph by Tihomir Trichkov (@pictiho ) // #Sponsored by @always_brand // "It was her break. She took her time. Long enough that I would see the moment she was creating right in front of me.," writes #YourShotPhotographer Tihomir Trichkov. "Perfect childhood scene. I also saw that I forgot my camera. Oopsie daisy. Big time. I silently ran out to my room to get it, came back immediately. I was lucky. She was still there. Drawing. In another world. Very quiet world. Never seen her like that, she is the loudest and most annoying peanut I have seen. Ever. But not this day. I called her name and she turned..." // Every day, all over the world, millions of girls miss school because they lack resources to navigate the onset of menstruation. @always_brand provides puberty education & period products to girls around the world to help keep them confident #LikeAGirl & focused on getting an education.

Value of School | Photograph by P Warner // #Sponsored by @always_brand // "Children in the Serengeti may travel many miles to school. Their resources are scarce, often requiring them to share books and paper," writes #YourShotPhotographer P. Warner. "But their enthusiasm to learn is quite evident.

[ #TBT From May 23, 2016 ] Top Shot: Elephants in the Sun | Photograph by Marc Mol . “A herd of elephants cast incredible shadows across the dry Luangwa Riveer floodplain as they journey to the refreshing waters of this dwindling river,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Marc Mol. “The looming shadows of the herd were clearer than the animals themselves, who seamlessly blended into the textured patterns of the sand below them.” This photo was selected for the Daily Dozen on May 20, 2016. — 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.
