Photo of the Day

a woman running through the Sahara desert in Morocco

Free to Fly

When photographer and Your Shot member Logan Swayze and his wife spent two days in the Sahara in Morocco, they were inspired. “We absolutely fell in love with the simplicity of the landscape, and I wanted to capture the feeling of freedom the Sahara offers its guests,” he writes. “This image represents just that for me—freedom—a woman running, almost taking flight [within] the infinity of the landscape.”
