Stone-Cold Remarkable

While on a trip to Portugal, Your Shot member Daria Chuvaeva “heard from a local barman [about] an unusual stone house located in the Fafe Mountains,” she says. Chuvaeva decided to journey to the offbeat dwelling, known as the Casa do Penedo, and this image is the result of her effort. “Even if I got lost a few times, I can say that it was definitely worth it,” she writes. “There was something mysterious in that boulder house, [and] I [took] photos of it for a few hours.”
