McWay Falls, Big Sur

Photograph by Mukul Soman, National Geographic Your Shot

Your Shot contributor Mukul Soman's nighttime photo of McWay Falls at Big Sur, California, was chosen to be part of our Travelogue assignment story. "This famous location at Big Sur is often photographed, but becomes more intriguing under the night sky," senior photo editor Sarah Polger explains. "The long exposure allows trees blowing in the wind to soften to a dreamy, brushed aesthetic, as the deep colors of the sky and ocean saturate the frame."
