Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Sentinels” by Charlotte Gibb. Location: Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, California.

“I made this composition during my most recent visit to the Eastern Sierra where the Fall color was a bit, well, weird,” recalls Gibb. “There were groves of aspens on fire with color adjacent to other groves that were completely bare, such as this one. Actually, I prefer to photograph bare trees rather than the ones plump with color. Compositionally, that is. Dazzling one’s audience with color seems a bit like cheating to me.”

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including Assignments, Your 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.
