This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel

Men and horses pause near El Calafate, a town just beyond Lake Argentina in the southern reaches of Patagonia. With its stunning backdrop of Andes peaks, the town is one of the country’s biggest tourist draws.

Photo Tip: Add layers to your composition—that is, multiple elements beyond the main subject, such as foreground and background elements.
