This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel Photos
I don’t claim the status of a photographer, I just take the pictures. When a subject catches my attention there’s no time for analysis or composition. My work is instinctual.

Fitzroy Gardens in Melbourne, Australia, takes on an ethereal quality in the light of a streetlamp, emanating deep hues of jade and emerald. “It reminds me of somewhere magical out of a fairy-tale story, a small piece of tranquility in the middle of a bustling city,” writes Luke Aveil, a contributor to Your Shot. Named after Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy, the gardens receive over two million visitors each year.

Lava glows red-hot, churning and rumbling in Kilauea Volcano’s Halemaumau Crater in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. “It is quite an experience when Earth feels incredibly large and one feels microscopic and insignificant in comparison,” writes Your Shot member Andrew Hara.
“I was able to legally access the edge of Halemaumau crater while volunteering for the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park,” Hara explains. After cautiously hiking through a closed-off area of the national park, respirator in tow, Hara deployed his tripod and camera. “I carefully set the timer for two minutes and walked around to the farther, visually stable edge of the crater to create this self-portrait.”
Hara’s picture recently appeared in the Your Shot assignment Embrace the Untamed.
