Double Vision

Photograph by Stéphane Scotto, National Geographic Your Shot

Kayakers navigate a watery fairway on the Bay of Arcachon in southwestern France. Your Shot member Stéphane Scotto was shooting aerial images from an ultralight motorized plane while the subject of a TV segment about his work on the bay. “The tide was changing, and I saw these two kayaks,” he writes. “[The scene] looked like an iris in which clouds were reflected."
