Photo Of The Day 10/17/2012

Crystal Cove After The Rain by Steph Sawyer

Steph Sawyer’s photograph of Crystal Cove in Southern California is today’s Photo Of The Day. The photograph was submitted to the Cloudscapes Assignment. She describes the photo simply, “Unusual clouds lit up during sunset after a winter storm moved through Southern California.” Most photographers know how much weather plays a role in making special images. In this case, the coastline where Sawyer took the photo is beautiful 365 days a year, but when a weather system rolls through, the opportunity to create a truly memorable photo presents itself.

The Cloudscapes Assignment is currently open for submissions.

Get your photos into the running for the Photo Of The Day by submitting the OP galleries. I select a Photo Of The Day everyday.
