On a stretch of road between Söderhamn and Gävle on the Swedish coast, Your Shot member Torsten Muehlbacher noticed this small island reflected in a lake. “I drove to a nearby parking area and walked a few minutes for the perfect view,” he writes. “I put my camera on a tripod and made a long-exposure shot for a better ‘mirror’ on the lake, because it was not windless.”

Muehlbacher’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
