“As technology shrinks the world around us, it becomes more and more difficult to find ourselves truly lost in the outdoors,” writes Matthew Saville. “This makes those particular moments and scenes that much more special.” Saville captured this shot of a tent on Half Dome’s Diving Board while camping in Yosemite National Park. “Getting to the Diving Board was quite a challenge, as there is no official trail,” he writes. “For anybody who is prepared, careful, and respectful of nature, the reward is one of the most breathtaking views in all of Yosemite, in my opinion.” This photo was submitted to the 2015 Traveler Photo Contest.
