On My Last Night

“On my last night in Senja, Norway, I was gifted with an incredible cloud inversion. After two days of rain and zero visibility, Senja finally revealed itself,” writes Your Shot photographer Terry Zhang. “I arrived at midnight and waited three hours for the sun to rise. With my tripod set up on the edge of a 500m cliff face, I ran into position to create a sense of scale as the fog began drifting. After 10 minutes, the fog had completely engulfed the peak. I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time and capture this moment.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
