Today’s Photo of the Day is ‘Crater Lake’ shot by Shawnel Hope with a Canon EOS 60D, Canon 18-200mm lens and Polarizer.

“Made the drive to take this panoramic image of Crater Lake. Had to trek through knee deep snow, and hike in 25 degree temperatures waiting for sun to set. This image made it all worth it!” says Hope.

Hope submitted ‘Crater Lake’ to the First Snow Assignment, which is open until midnight tomorrow December 9th. 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 print. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
