A road trip to Poland’s Masurian Lake District included this moment of summertime joy for the traveling family of Your Shot member Malgorzata Walkowska. “Being impressed with the beauty of the landscape, we decided to make a stop by this field of hay bales and take some nature shots,” writes Walkowska. “Before I knew it, my niece—who trains in gymnastics—was happily jumping from one bale to another, presenting her skills.”
