National Geographic Your Shot

[ #TBT From July 19, 2016 ] Top Shot: Winter Sunrise | Photograph by Gregor Thelen
.
“Just before dawn the sun rises over the Hintersee National Park in Germany. The mist clears over the dead calm lake giving a mystic view of the mountains greeting the morning sun,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Gregor Thelen. “Like a land untouched by human hand the quietness and peace is tangible in the delicate shades and majestic nature rising from the night.”

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.
