Photo of the Day

January 22, 2019

Windswept Waves

"The wind has been harsh all day, with these low clouds moving across the mountain sporadically, blanketing the slopes," says Your Shot photographer Adam Gearing of his day in Thredbo, Australia. "These grooves in the snow have been carved out by the winds, leaving a brilliant texture up the ridge-line." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
