GOLDEN PAVILION

The sun lights up the gold leaf that adorns Kinkaku-ji, a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. While the site dates back to the 14th century, the current pavilion was built in the 1950s after the original burned down.

MORNING MIST

Your Shot photographer Todd B. had a goal to see the Dolomites, a dramatic mountain range in Italy, at sunrise. But there was one problem–the gondola to the top didn’t open until well after the sun was up. Undeterred, he woke up at 4:00 am and hiked two hours to the top of Seceda. “Needless to say, it was worth it,” he says. “I couldn’t have asked for better!”

OUT TO SEA

On the beach of Binh Thuan, a coastal central province of Vietnam, fishermen push their boat, called a coracle, out to sea. Your Shot photographer Tran Tuan Viet explains, “Fishermen who navigate the coracle must have excellent health and special skills to keep the boat balanced by high waves and precise operation.”
