Above the Clouds

In Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was almost completely covered in fog, which is exactly what Your Shot photographer Shanof K. was hoping for. "I had to wait for a complete year waiting for the perfect day to take this shot," he says. "Seeing this view was more than magical."
