Photographing on a foggy morning near Pampore, India, Your Shot member Sajad Rafeeq waited half an hour for a passing train to complete his composition. “I had reached a village and a few kids guided me to a canal,” Rafeeq writes. “It’s surrounded by poplar trees on both sides, and as soon as I reached it, I saw their beautiful symmetry and also spotted the railway bridge. I framed the composition while having in mind the train that had yet to come.”

Rafeeq’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
