Morning in Pyongyang

Your Shot photographer Reuben Teo was getting dressed one morning in Pyongyang, North Korea, when he noticed the misty sunrise from his window. "The calmness and tranquility of the city is a big contrast to the tensions that we often hear in the outside world and the mainstream media," he says. "The feeling of waking up and seeing North Korea outside my window is very surreal but amazing at the same time." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
