Sunset at the Emperor's Temple of Heaven in #Beijing. Another achievement of patience and perseverance. Shooting a shot without any people in one of the most crowded sights of #China is the greatest challenge I've ever accomplished in my photography career. *Patting self on the shoulder* For more photos: http://bit.ly/reubenteo
Top Shot: Sunset Flight | Photograph by Phillip Chang
“This picture was taken from a helicopter over Tanzania’s Lake Natron,” writes Your Shot photographer Phillip Chang. “A flock of flamingos were flying over the lake against the last rays of the sun. Reflections of the blue sky and golden cloud made the lake the perfect background for the pink birds.”

Photo by @max.lowe // The wildlife that shares our home ground here in Montana is one of the most delightful parts about living in a state with so much wild and open land. I encountered this young red fox while working on a project in the Big Hole Valley several summers back, and my interactions with him have stuck with me since, looking down my lens into his curious and gentle gaze.

Photo by @FransLanting When emperor penguin chicks are a month old they are no longer guarded by their parents around the clock and they form creches where they can keep each other warm by huddling together, just like their parents do in mid-winter. When parents return from the sea they head for the creches to pick up their chicks. Go to @FransLanting to see more emperor penguin huddles and if you are on the East Coast of the US we hope you’ll stay warm too!
