Grass Light

Planning to shoot a rare supermoon, Your Shot member David L. Labrie went camping in the wilderness of Quebec, Canada, with his girlfriend, pictured here. Labrie was setting up his equipment when he noticed the high grass in the water. He asked his girlfriend to take the kayak and hold steady while he captured a long exposure. But a small breeze made it difficult to keep the kayak still. “We had to take several before we achieved this result,” he writes. Labrie’s shot was recently featured in the Best of the World story.
