Photo of the Day

Night Rider

Your Shot photographer Amy Osness learned the value of persistance while photographing her son on his mountain bike in Saint George, Utah. "This is our second attempt at capturing this image," she says. "I learned a lot the first time around and was able to create the image I had envisioned. My son balanced himself a top the narrow arch long enough for me to take a few shots just as the moon was rising behind him." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
