Photo of the Day

July 6, 2018

Hazy Day

"The sea was very rough and the undertow was very strong," says Your Shot photographer Sandra Cattaneo Adorno of this day on Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. "The bathers were hesitating to get into the sea. A thick mist hung over the beach and was coloured by the light of the sunset."
