In the Frosty Air

The moonlight makes an enchanting backdrop for plants coated in frost. Gvido Satori made this photo while walking “an ordinary country road” one night in Latvia. “I like to take the Nikon D810 [and] a small LED flashlight and go on a small adventure,” he writes. “In the night, everything is different.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our storytelling community where members can take part in photo assignments, get expert feedback, be published, and more.
