Photo of the Day by Phillip Nicholas

‘High Sierra Sunset’ by Phillip NIcholas

Today’s Photo of the Day was submitted to the Colors Coming Through Assignment by Phillip Nicholas.

“This photo was taken on the tail end of a magnificent sunset from Mt. Watkins in Yosemite National Park. As the color was beginning to fade, I turned around and saw a thin sliver of brilliant pink light spilling onto the low clouds hovering on the base of Clouds Rest. I used the angular lines from the back of Mt. Watkins to create movement within the scene and help create this image,” says Nicholas.

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