Today’s Photo Of The Day is “The Firefall” by Sangeeta Dey. Location: Yosemite National Park, California.

“This is Horsetail Falls in the Yosemite National Park,” says Dey. “Every year for two weeks in February, the sun sets at a certain angle and illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a fluid fire. I’ve met photographers who said that they have been coming for 11 years only to see this happen two or three times.”

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.
