‘Aurora Above Yttersand Beach’ by Alex Conu


Aurora Above Yttersand Beach by Alex Conu is today’s Photo of the Day. “After a long night under the Aurora, I stopped by these rocks on our way back to the car. I thought the rocks would be a nice foreground,” says Conu, who shot this image on the coast of Norway outside of Fredvang. Conu used a Canon EOS 6D and Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens and submitted the image to the Your Favorite Places Gallery.

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including AssignmentsYour Favorite Places and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage and several images from the Assignment Gallery are picked to be featured in The Best Of Assignments section in the print magazine. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
