Top of the Täschhorn

A climber stands atop the jagged peak of the Täschhorn in the Swiss Alps. Your Shot photographer Ben Tibbetts was in the same group that climbed the 14,734-foot tall mountain. "We set off under a fine starry sky," but before it even got light it started snowing... making for a long day out. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
