Pushkar Camel Fair | Photograph by Sabbyy Sg (@sabbyy.sg) . “This was shot at Pushkar, Rajasthan during the famous camel fair which is held every year,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Sabbyy Sg. “This fair also attracts many tourists from all over the world. Herders from around India gather together to trade, buy, and sell their camels. It is one of the biggest camel fairs in the world.” — “Couldn’t have had a better moment to really draw your eye to the subject through the arches of the camels out of focus in the foreground. The longer focal length really helps and I also like how you are a fly on the wall here with the subject not looking into the camera. I could see this published in the yellow book!” — @natgeo photographer Renan Ozturk (@renan_ozturk)

Photo by Jacob Everitt (@jeverittphotography) // #Sponsored by @purenewzealand // #MyNewZealandStory // Taken in the most eastern point in the world, writes #YourShotPhotographer Jacob Everitt. It was New Years Eve 2017 when some friends and I took a road trip to East Cape, New Zealand to see the first light of the new year. We sat by the warmth of the fire on the beach and watched as the stars sparkled to life above us. — This image was submitted to the #MyNewZealandStory hashtag challenge curated by National Geographic Photographer Erika Larsen (@erikalarsen888).

Top Shot: Northern Harriers Airshow | Photograph by Jack Zhi . “Northern harriers are rarely seen birds. Getting a good shot of one can be a challenge. It took me a month to capture the shot, after work in the weeks plus weekends,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Jack Zhi. “When I saw them engaged in a sky-dance in the distance, I was so surprised and excited! Of course, by the time I got there, they disappeared. I picked a spot with wind and the sun behind me and hoped for the best. Luckily, they reappeared, dancing up and down.” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on October 16, 2018. — Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads.

Face to Face in a River in Borneo | Photograph by Jayaprakash Joghee Bojan (@jayaprakash_bojan) . A male orangutan peers from behind a tree while crossing a river in Borneo, Indonesia. Rampant palm oil cultivation threatens this critically endangered ape, forcing the normally aboreal species to resort to unusual behavior — such as wading through crocodile-infested rivers — in order to survive. This photo won grand prize in the 2017 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year Contest. — The 2018 @natgeo Photo Contest has launched, the link is in our profile.

Top Shot: Have All Your Camels in a Row | Photograph by Gonzalo Corral . #YourShotPhotographer Gonzalo Corral photographed this camel caravan in the Sahara Desert. Your Shot Producer David Y. Lee writes, “I love #YourShotPhotographer Kimberly Coates’s comment: ‘Wow, what a fabulous shot! I once rode camels in a Berber caravan through the Sahara, and it was a magical experience, so this takes me back! Your shot is very subtle, but packs a punch. I love the soft tones and shadows cast by the variable sand dunes. I also love how you chose to frame the camels off to the right with the trees balancing out the frame on the left. Great work, Gonzalo.’” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on October 15, 2018. — Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads.

There Should Be Salmon… | Photograph by Douglas Croft (@douglascroftimages) . “A Spirit bear paces up and down a stream that should be full of water and salmon at this time of year,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Douglas Croft. “There has been a severe drought in the rainforest and the need for rain is immense. The whole ecosystem depends on good salmon runs and so far, those numbers are as low as the rainfall totals.” This photo was selected for the October 12, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series. — “This moment feels like pure magic to me Douglas. I love how the bear’s white fur is so stark against the lush green background while the perfect little rim-lights on her fur. I can’t get over how lovely the dappled light is in this forest. So beautifully done, thank you for sharing.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

My Favorite Place | Photograph by Allison Blackburn-Billings (@alsprivateplace) . “[This is] my favorite place to go when I have a headache or just need to get away and think,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Allison Blackburn-Billings. “The beautiful blue skies and white wispy clouds accentuated by the thickly covered snowy mountain, the yellow larch trees mixed in between the green pines, the cool air — perfection.” This photo was selected for the October 12, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series. — “Autumn is my favorite season and photos like this embody it entirely. I do like snow a little later in the fall, but in this photo the colors the trees contrasting with the crisp snow create a balanced image that lets our eyes play across the frame. This view is certainly the best antidote to a headache. Thank you for sharing your favorite place with us, Allison!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

In the Mud | Photograph by Anirban Mandal . In India, mud wrestling is a fierce sport called Kushti. #YourShotPhotographer Anirban Mandal explains that the sport is actually a way of life, passed down from teacher to student while living in communal residences called akharas. He says, The brotherhood of the men living in Akharas practice strict diet, discipline and sacrifice from distractions in order to prepare their bodies and minds, learning techniques, gathering strength and speed for the sport. — Today we are featuring @natgeoyourshot photographs selected for @natgeo “Photo of the Day.” To see more, go to natgeo.com/pod.
