Photo Of The Day 7/12/2012
Self Portrait by Stan Newman
The nature photographer’s self portrait is something we all indulge in from time to time. In this case, photographer Stan Newman found his shadow creeping into this scene in Oregon’s Umpqua Dunes and instead of struggling to fight it, he went with it and made this photograph. The image was sent to the Photographs Of Photographers Assignment which is still open for submissions.
I select a Photo Of The Day everyday. Images come from the OP Galleries like Your Favorite Places, Assignments and the contest galleries. You can see more of my Photo Of The Day selections on the OP Blog.
