Photo Of The Day By Clayton Peoples

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Shibusa (Simplicity)” by Clayton Peoples. Location: Lake Yamanaka near Mount Fuji, Japan.

“I had never visited Japan before but definitely wanted to visit the Fuji Five Lakes area,” explains Peoples. “On this particular morning, I visited Lake Yamanaka in hopes of seeing Mount Fuji from its shore. Unfortunately, it was a very foggy morning, and views of Mount Fuji were at first obscured. But patience paid off—the fog eventually began to clear and Fuji came into view. Meanwhile, a solitary swan swam into the scene, adding to the simple beauty of the scene.”

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including AssignmentsGalleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, FacebookTwitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
