Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Shasta Valley Early Morning Mist” by Beth Young. Location: Shasta Valley Wildlife Area, California.

“Early-morning mist rolling over the hills surrounding Shasta Valley Wildlife Area, as the sun was getting ready to rise,” describes Young. “Moments like this call for telephoto lenses to compress the focal length and add attention and drama to the moment.”
