Glow Worms

Your Shot photographer Josselin Cornou says this shot was only possible under a very specific condition: "after sunset during a torrential rain." She says that new inhabitants have found a home here, in what was once a busy train tunnel in Helensburgh, New South Wales, Australia. "A city of glow worms are populating this old train station, providing beautiful lights on rainy days." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
