Today’s Photo Of The Day is “The Fin Red Rock Winter” by David Shield. Location: Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wilderness, Arizona.

“This is one of my favorite trails in Sedona because there are so many options for compositions,” says Shield. “However, many of the red rock scenes are partially blocked by the surrounding trees and flora, which inspires me to explore angles that aren’t obviously presented. I have hiked this trail a few times in search of new compositions and came across this view by accident after hiking to the top of a small butte located a short distance off the main trail. From this vantage point, the butte seen here resembles a shark fin. Just after I shot here for the first time, Sedona experienced a rare large snow storm. I immediately knew that this was the spot I wanted to return to so I could set up and capture a true red rock winter image.”
