Flock of Dust

A group of herders tend to their flock of sheep on the dusty roads near Nemrut Mountain in Turkey. “I took this photo on a hot summer day,” writes Abudllah Metin, a National Geographic Your Shot member. “It was definitely a breathtaking atmosphere … I did not want to miss this moment.” Metin’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
