A young monk shields himself with a blanket from the snow in Sichuan, China. Your Shot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas writes, “The colors are striking in this photograph. I love the dusting of snow on this sea of red blankets. I can’t get enough of this young monk’s gaze, either. Beautiful composition!” Photograph by Xiaoyun Zheng
