Photo of the Day

Green and Gold

A lone family shares a stretch of beach with some seagulls near Mordialloc, Australia. Your Shot photographer Peter Virag says he loves "the amazing colors of the beach umbrella and towels, and the dark emerald green versus the golden sand-- which also happen to be the national colors of Australia." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
