Wintry Walkabout

Photograph by Shaun Wilson, National Geographic Your Shot

Your Shot community member Shaun Wilson submitted this photo of an icy trek in the English Lake District. "We got caught on top of Helm Crag in the snow," he writes. "Helm Crag is a fell in the Central Fells." The mountains in the area, locally known as "fells," aren't imposing compared with other mountains throughout the world, but their beauty is a tourist draw.

Wilson’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.

This photo speaks volumes.B&W creates a magical effect that takes us back in time.The positioning makes me feel as if I was walking behind them.
