Fantastic Photography 

Once-in-a-Lifetime View

Photograph by Cory Mottice, National Geographic Your Shot
A rainbow adds magic to an already paradisiacal scene captured by Your Shot member Cory Mottice at Havasu Falls, Arizona. “The clouds looked promising for a decent sunset, so I left my campsite and headed up to Havasu Falls,” he writes. “Instead, I was treated to a once-in-a-lifetime view.”

  1. Ann these are such interesting posts. The one of the photograph really grabbed my attention. But then so did the first one in Montauk. And how about the other one with the pets? Where will I go to first. It shows how good an editor you are that I want to read all of your selections. Thank you for sharing with us at Sweet Inspiration.
