Returning From the Deep | Photograph by Wendy Timmermans (@seadrops_photography)
.
“On the coast of the Sinai desert is a small village called Dahab, where the famous Blue Hole is located in the Red Sea. An international community of free divers plunges into the deep, diving on one breath up to depths of 93 meters,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Wendy Timmermans. “Several times a year I co-organize competitions in this amazing place. This picture shows athlete Heike Schwerdtner on the final part of her ascent accompanied by safety free drivers and judges, and with spectators awaiting on the surface.”

“I agree with Your Shot photographer Janet Ellison, who commented, "This is incredible! So beautiful, wonderful lighting, great framing. I feel like I'm right there with them in the water!" This is so magical Wendy. I love the lyricism in this moment you captured, with everybody focused on the one free driver ascending from the depths of darkness. Well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

#YourShotPhotographer Yen Chao captures the moment a hyena catches a young wildebeest. Your Shot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams) commented, "Wow, what a moment and an excellent wildlife image that shows the circle of life and the struggle of being part of the animal kingdom. The expressions on both of the faces here make this an even more interesting image to view."

Hatching Out | Photograph by Pam Voth (@pam_voth)

An emu chick hatches at the Wild Rose Emu Ranch in Hamilton, Montana. #YourShotPhotographer Pam Voth waited for hours, watching the chick work on coming out of its shell. "What surprised me was the delicate, tiny little whistling call it made as it was hatching," she remembers. "In the wild, this chick's whistle would have been answered by the male on the nest."

Bliss | Photograph by Anton Gorlin (@antongorlin)

“This is one of the shots I waited three days for; this morning in Milford Sound was chilly and windy with torrential rain. But if you want to see the rainbow, which was behind me, you have to wait until the rain finishes, right?” writes #YourShotPhotographer Anton Gorlin. “This place is so awesome. You can just stand here all day and watch what happens with the light, if there is any light! Because Milford Sound is known for its bad weather — it is the rainiest place in the world.”

This photo was submitted to our “The Trip That Changed My Life” assignment — one Your Shot photo will be featured on the cover of the @natgeotravel magazine June/July 2018 “Epic Summer” issue. Go to the link in our profile to participate. Maybe it will be you. Good luck #YourShotPhotographer.
