Dark Forest | Photograph by Rui Caria
In the misty dark forest on Terceira Island in Azores, Portugal, #YourShotPhotographer Rui Caria made this image of a couple as they searched for a place to be photographed.
“I love the mysterious mood in your frame; it feels like a scene from a fairytale, and my overactive imagination finds itself creating a narrative about who these two are, what are they doing and why. I love the beam of light emitted from the flashlight, guiding these two safely through the forest. Well done Rui.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)
