The Waterfalls Assignment gallery is overflowing with magnificent submissions. Aaron Meyers’ photo from Yosemite National Park caught my eye today. First, it’s a beautiful photo. Second, I’ve been thinking about Yosemite and all of the nonsense happening in Washington which has now closed Yosemite to the public. And third, the falls themselves reminded me of how our government is supposed to run…small streams divided that tumble and crash but eventually come together. My apologies for such a clumsy analogy. Regardless of my preoccupations with a ridiculous shutdown that is likely going to ruin my plans for going to Joshua Tree National Park this weekend, Aaron Meyers photo is deserving of today’s Photo of The Day honors. Meyers used his Nikon D300s and a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.
I select a Photo Of The Day every day. I choose the images from the various OP galleries including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print and I select a weekly winner to be featured on the OP home page. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.
