Moscow, Russia

On the day that I made this photo, it was really cold. It was the beginning of March, but in Russia it seemed like it was the middle of winter. I was lucky and unlucky with the weather at the same time. I was standing on the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge, and a cold strong wind was blowing, but the same wind drove the clouds in the sky and the ice on the river.

Correfoc, Barcelona

Typical Catalan culture, the correfoc are simple parades using fireworks and effigies of the devil.

Night Sky, Patagonia

I hiked several hours through the night in Patagonia to find a tree I had seen a few days earlier and photograph it with the night sky.

Crinoid Shrimp, Philippines

A wonderful crinoid shrimp photographed during a dive in Moalboal, Philippines. Very hard to find because this shrimp perfectly mimics the crinoid. This photo and caption were submitted to Your Shot. Check out the new and improved website, where you can share and connect with fellow photographers from around the globe.

Tallinn, Estonia

I love this shot because it is telling different stories, but I like the story that is saying, "Together stronger."

Cherry Blossoms, Japan

Cherry blossom is called sakura in Japanese. It is a Japanese symbolic flower. There are various kinds of cherry trees, and an especially old cherry tree is called edo-higan.
