Human Tower

Every year in Spain, a Catalan tradition of building castells - human towers reaching up to 10 stories takes place in the town of Vilafranca del Penedes. This image was photographed during the annual festivities in honor of Saint Felix, the town's patron saint. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
