Omo Valley, Ethiopia

Photograph by Steven Goethals, National Geographic Your Shot

A recent Your Shot assignment asked members of our photo community to help us create a Travelogue. This picture by Steven Goethals—one of 20 selected by the story's editor—shows a young Hamar boy in Ethiopia's Omo Valley. It's sunset, and the boy "is watching his older brothers participating in the Evangadi courtship dance," writes Goethals. "He is not old enough, but one day when he is all grown up … he will be the one jumping."
