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."
