Rain At Last

A month-long stretch of no rain on Amantani Island in Lake Titikaka, Peru, ended one night with a spectacular storm. Photographer Filippo Taddei was upset he couldn't spend the evening outside, but he was relieved for nearby farmers. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
