Through the Light

"It felt like we had the whole country to ourselves and with only four hours of daylight we were on a race against time to get from one destination to another," says Your Shot photographer Noel Jay of his Icelandic expedition. "The weather didn't help at all, with snow covered roads and heavy winds truly making it a unforgettable experience. " This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
