When photographer Hannes Lochner set up his camera at a water hole in South Africa’s Kalahari, he tried hiding it from curious lions because “they might play with it or carry it off,” he writes. “On this particular evening, I was in my vehicle just as the sun was setting, the dust in the air creating a special kind of Kalahari light, and a pride of lions arrived. By repeatedly clicking the shutter, I coaxed the ever curious cubs forward.”
Lochner’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

“I was drawn to an older woman who was working very hard on crafting these hats,” writes Your Shot memberHuynh Jet, who captured this photo in a traditional dwelling in Duc Hoa, Long An Province, Vietnam. “I climbed on a ladder and stood there until I caught the moment when she put the threads into the hat. A big traditional family in Long An has made and sold hats for over a hundred years.”

A tight angle captures the McCloud River falling in tiers to an unseen swimming hole below. The Middle McCloud Falls are one of three on the clear, chilly river in northern California’s Shasta-Trinity National Forest. From an overlook at the Middle Falls, visitors can take in Mount Shasta and Castle Crags among other natural features.

“I met this crocodile face-to-face underwater,” writes Your Shot member Mike Korostelev. “There was only my underwater camera between it and me.”
Having long dreamt of photographing a crocodile in its natural aquatic habitat, Korostelev traveled to Banco Chinchorro, Mexico, a biosphere reserve in the Caribbean Sea and a breeding ground for American crocodiles. “We lived in a fisherman’s hut that stood right on the sea on stilts. During the day we searched for crocodiles, which swam out of mangroves to hunt fish. This one was quite friendly and showed its beauty all around.”

It’s bracing weather for a walk on a November afternoon in the town of Deal on England’s North Sea coast. “Only a few people out, a number walking the dog,” writes Your Shot member Cedric Delves. “Perhaps it was the weather, but having wrapped up, most appeared to have turned inward, to thoughts, worries, and all; only the dogs seemed wholly at ease, simply out and about for the fun of it.
“I thought I would try to capture something of this. These three came from different directions, at differing speeds … Fortunately all came together: the two people deep in their thoughts, going their separate ways, but the dog at ease, even giving me a direct, open, and sort of knowing look.”
