Adventure photographer Jimmy Chin (jimmychin.com) captured this incredible image of celebrated American climber Dean Potter highlining over Yosemite Falls in Yosemite, California, in 2010. Chin, who was recently added to Canon’s prestigious Explorers of Light group of professional photographers, shot this photo with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and an EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens at 17mm, 1/500 second, f/14, ISO 200. Potter died in 2015 in a wingsuit flying accident in Yosemite National Park.
