Alex Chamberlain submitted today's Photo Of The Day to the Your Best Photo Of 2013 Assignment. Chamberlain describes how he got this photo, "After an evening shooting the Toadstool Hoodoos in Utah, my friend and I retired for the night only to be awakened at 4am by a lightning storm the likes of which we had seldom seen. We jogged back to the hoodoos and spent the rest of the dark part of the morning shooting the lightning behind the formations." The wild lightning exhibition, brilliantly lit storm clouds and graphic rock formation silhouettes all come together in this photo. Chamberlain used a Canon EOS 60D with a Canon EF-S 10-22 lens.
