Photo of the Day

June 9, 2018

Morning Mist

Your Shot photographer Todd B. had a goal to see the Dolomites, a dramatic mountain range in Italy, at sunrise. But there was one problem--the gondola to the top didn't open until well after the sun was up. Undeterred, he woke up at 4:00 am and hiked two hours to the top of Seceda. "Needless to say, it was worth it," he says. "I couldn't have asked for better!" This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
