Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Storm Building Over Zion National Park” by Laura Zirino. Shooting location: Gooseberry Mesa Trailhead, Zion National Park, Utah.

“Photography really wasn’t on my mind when I shot this,” said Zirino. “My husband was out mountain biking on Gooseberry Mesa while this storm was building, and I was anxiously watching it from the trailhead, hoping he’d get back soon. But I couldn’t ignore this beautiful light right in front of me. Gooseberry Mesa gives a side view of the Zion cliffs that you usually don’t see, so I ran to the car and got my camera and tripod.

Gear: Canon 5D Mk III, 24-105mm lens, tripod, polarizer
