So it means something when I say that this storm rolling over the Eastern Plains of Colorado was the worst I've ever been caught in. After dodging funnel clouds, 70 mph winds, possible tornadoes, extreme flash flooding, lightning strikes and a road that washed clear away as I drove over it, I still found myself wondering what the light would do after the storm passed. This was the result.” (Photograph Courtesy Nate Zeman / National Geographic Your Shot)

“This shot was taken during our family tour [of] Iceland. The waterfall is called Seljalandsfoss. During this trip we used a motor home, so we camped about 500 meters from the [beautiful] waterfall. Before our dinner at 10 p.m., I took this image with the sunset colors.” Cast your vote and weigh in on the best shots at http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/your-shot/voting-machine.
