Between the Lines | Photograph by Fran Llano (@franllano_photography)
Mist surrounds the jagged edges of flysch on the Basque Coast in Spain. Flysch alternates thin and coarse layers of sediment, making for a dramatic landscape. But Your Shot photographer Fran Llano writes that the view is more than just aesthetic, it's informational. "Layer by layer," he says, "the rocks offer a unique vision of the geological features of this area, reading a rocky book full of information."

In Ken McFarlane’s (@365ken) portrait work, two common threads weave through: strength and dignity. “What is often highlighted in our communities is not necessarily the only thing, the best thing or the things that we know to be true,” says the photographer, based in Philadelphia. Reclaiming representations of the black community is important to Ken. “I believe in giving agency or utilizing our own agency in reflecting ourselves in the larger sense,” he explains. “What Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others sacrificed allows me to have the mindset and the perspective that I have. My goal is really to open new windows of opportunity so that new heroes and heroines can be known.”
This post is in honor of #MLKDAY in the United States. Watch our story to see more from Ken.

A suspension bring in the mists of Yakushima Island, Japan.

Yakushima is a place where you will find few foreign visitors. Located an hour ferry ride south of Kagoshima, which is the southern most city in Japan’s four major islands, it is a place which has a special place in Japanese culture.

The top of the island is old growth cedar forests which are often covered in clouds. The island was the inspiration for the 1997 animated film Princess Mononoke by Hayao Miyazaki. It is also declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993.

Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto // The lush rice terraces of the Jinsha River valley cover the hillsides of the upper stretches of the Yangtze River creating breathtaking views that take you back in time. For over 2000 years rice has been cultivated from these valleys. The terraces were constructed along the slopes winding from the riverside up to the mountain tops. China is the world's top producer and consumer of rice. It produces and consumes a third of the world's rice, about 200 million tons a year. You won’t regret getting off the beaten path to see and explore these beautiful timeless landscapes. Follow me @jodymacdonaldphoto to see more images from around the world. #china #yunnan


#Dinamarca redefine lo que significa desacelerar, sentirse cómodo y disfrutar el momento. Esta forma de vida social, llamada "hygge" por los daneses, le valió la fama de ser uno de los países más felices del mundo. Sin embargo, no existe una fórmula mágica, se trata más bien de la calidad del tiempo compartido. Así que donde quiera que estés, disminuye la velocidad, ponte cómodo y disfruta el momento con familiares y amigos.
