Today’s Photo Of The Day is of Wild Goose Island in St. Mary’s Lake, Glacier National Park, taken during the forest fires in Montana.
“I hiked down a narrow trail in almost complete darkness as ash fell from the sky from the forest fires raging beyond the mountains you see at the horizon,” says Sapkal. “This was shot just a day before the roads were shut down because of fast-spreading Sprague forest fires. Montana had 21 simultaneously active fires last fire season covering over 438,000 acres of land, the worst in the state’s recorded history.”
Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including Assignments, Galleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
