A Wash of Color

Photograph by Eduard Paravyan, National Geographic Your Shot

While engaged in a prosaic activity—waiting—Your Shot community member Eduard Paravyan took a moment to examine his surroundings. "One bright, sunny day, we arrived at Ko Phi Phi in Thailand," he writes. "While waiting [for] a long-tail boat at the pier, I noticed the extraordinary transparency of the water. In the depths I saw the fish and enchanting reflections of sunlight." Realizing the photo-worthiness of the moment, he snapped this image of colorful fish swimming in the Andaman Sea.
