Walk on Water

Your Shot photographer Ramiro Torrents was in for a pleasant surprise when he set up his camera to photograph the reflection of these mountains in Iceland. "After a while I figured out this was not a lake but high tide water instead—only a few inches deep!" he says. "So I started walking on it. Such a fantastic sensation after thinking it was a deep lake!" This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
