Mitre Peak, New Zealand

Photograph by Qian Wang

"People say 90 percent of the time, it is either raining or cloudy in Milford Sound," says Qian Wang, who took this photo for our Your Shot photo community. "How lucky I am to capture the moment when the thread of sunshine tipped onto Mitre Peak for just about one minute."
