Photo of the Day

August 8, 2018

Golden Morning

The early morning sun bathes Mandalay, Myanmar, in golden light. Your Shot photographer Weng Sang Wong was not completely sure what kind of image he would capture when he got up that morning for this shot. “I reached the top of the mountain in the early morning without knowing what would happen next," he says. "Luckily, I saw the sunrise turning the blue sky into a crimson color, and then the amazing golden sunlight appeared." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
