Redwood National Park, California

Photograph by Zhao Duan Chan, Your Shot

Photographer Zhao Duan Chan captured this moment in California's Redwood National Forest, where he and three friends had gone for a day trip. "As the sun started setting we ran back up another trail so as not to be stuck in the forest in the pitch-dark," he says. "However, we had to stop for a moment in awe as the sun hit the horizon."
