Aomori Moon Sho Shibata, National Geographic Your Shot
"There was a beautiful morning crescent moon, and the ice was cracking on the frozen lake,” says Your Shot contributor Sho Shibata, who had spent the night in his car waiting for dawn on Lake Towada on the border of Aomori and Akita prefectures, Japan. The peaceful scene wasn’t captured without incident: As he walked out to get the shot, Shibata’s leg fell through the ice.
