Top Shot: A Snowy Morning
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. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.
“6:50 am, the sky is clear, the sun gets up and I spot a snowy owl in the snow,” writes Your Shot photographer Serge Chenard. “From a great distance, I observed it for a long time so that the owl would accept my presence. I crawled very slowly on the ground, only a short distance. The more I approached the bird, the more the sky covers itself. Suddenly, the snow begins, and once I was able to stabilized my camera on the ground, I documented this beautiful scene.” Photograph by Serge Chenard
