Misty Mountains

Your Shot photographer Karsten Hoenack says that he was "totally overwhelmed" by the beauty of this mountain chain in Coahuila, Mexico. "Mexico is one of those countries which surprises you around every corner," he says. After this sight, he remembers, "Minutes later Monterrey City appeared. Fantastic how close to a big city such a beautiful landscape can be." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
