Stone, Water & Light by Dan Holmes

Dan Holmes gets today’s Photo Of The Day honors with this photo from Matkamiba Canyon in Grand Canyon National Park. The photo was submitted to the new Reflections Assignment which is open for submissions through April 23rd. This photo makes use of the reflection to add swaths of color in the foreground and results in a far more interesting image than it otherwise would have been. As Holmes writes, “The blue colored sky is reflected in the white layers next to the water. I especially love this image, as the “sky” is at the bottom!” He used a Canon EOS 5D Mk II, Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 lens, Induro tripod, Manfrotto ballhead and a Hoya polarizer.

You can see all of the images Dan Holmes has submitted to the OP Galleries on his OP Galleries Member Page.

I select a Photo Of The Day every day. I choose the images from the various OP galleries including AssignmentsYour Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print and I select a weekly winner to be featured on the OP home page. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.
