A Day’s Work

A shepherd carries heavy luggage on a snowy mountain in northern Iran. According to Your Shot member Hemad Nazari, shepherds must walk 12 miles a day when moving their flocks of sheep from the high mountains to the valley. Nazari’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen. This photo was submitted to Your Shot.
