Photo of the Day

November 10, 2016

Sun and Sand

"In the sand dunes south of Merzouga, a village in southern Morocco, Your Shot photographer Moussa Idrissi came upon a “hypnotic moment”—a meeting with a nomad guiding his caravan of camels as the sun dipped below the horizon. Finding himself “with … good company,” Idrissi writes that he could not miss the opportunity to capture all of these elements. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
