Top Shot: Blossoms Under the Moon | Photograph by Yasutomo Kato
#YourShotPhotographer Yasutomo Kato captured this scene of cherry blossoms under a full moon while photographing landscapes in Nara-shi, Nara, Japan. “This is so beautiful Yasutomo,” writes Your Shot producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee). “The light is so soft, I love how it wraps around the foreground trees. I love how quiet and peaceful this scene feels. I love it. Well done.”
