Photo of the Day

January 5, 2018

Three Peaks

Your Shot photographer Peter Nestler spent 18 hours in the Italian Alps, admiring the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. "The most peaceful and happy times in my life are when I am alone (or as close as I can get) in nature," he says. "The more densely populated we become, the more important I believe it is to preserve these natural spaces." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
