Arctic Sunset

Your Shot photographer Johan Vesters captures his friends taking in the sunset while hiking Husfjell, a picturesque mountain on Norway's Senja Island. "After hours of hiking through the snow, we finally got to the top. Views like these are the best kind of reward one could wish for at the end of a hike," he said.
