Photo of the Day

On the Way Up

"Every morning is a chance at a new day,” writes Your Shot photographer Riyas Muhammed. And as the sun rises over Dubai, United Arab Emirates, pedestrians make their way up a series of ramps—either on two wheels or two feet—ready to start their day. 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.
