After the Rain

“It rained during the second evening of our jeep tour of the Bolivian salt desert,” writes Your Shot member Guy Nesher. “The next day we discovered that the ground had turned into an almost perfect mirror due to a thin layer of water that accumulated on it overnight. It was breathtaking. Initially I tried to shoot the empty desert, but the lack of any distinct features made the photos quite boring. I soon realized that my best bet was the other jeeps traveling beside us.”

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