While spending the winter holidays with family in Zermatt, Switzerland, Your Shot member Andrey Omelyanchuk found that most of the best spots for views of the resort town were difficult to access. “To reach this stunning viewpoint, I had to hike up the ski slope in the dead of night for 20 minutes,” he writes. The effort’s result: a peaceful look at the town coming awake at dawn.

Omelyanchuk’s image was recently featured in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
