Fox and Ice | Photograph by Sonalini Khetrapal (@sonalinik)
"I wanted to photograph the rare blue morph species of arctic foxes in their harsh winter environment," says #YourShotPhotographer Sonalini Khetrapal. "To photograph these miraculously tough animals, I went to the uninhabited Hornstrandir Nature Reserve in northern Iceland. I captured my dream image as she stared straight at me, making fleeting eye contact, while we both braced ourselves against the roaring winds."

“During August and September, there are millions of animals in the Maasai Mara Natural Reserve in Kenya,” writes Your Shot photographer Jay Ruan. “On this September morning, a wildebeest eating grass intersected the sun coming out of the horizon. It was one of the most beautiful sunrises I have seen.”
