Photo of the Day

Red Sky at Night

Capturing this long exposure of a sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge was a calculated adventure. Your Shot photographer Benjamin Stein had to wait for the perfect tide and the perfect sunset. In addition to patience, it required "standing on the side of a large rock, with water up to your knees and seals swimming around looking at you," Stein says. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
