Photo Of The Day By Beau Liddell
Photo By Beau Liddell
Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Wave Action” by Beau Liddell. Location: Superior National Forest, Minnesota.
“Sun setting over the Sawtooth Range as waves crash on Lake Superior’s rocky shoreline at Grand Marais, Minnesota,” describes Liddell. “The dramatic backlighting, wave action and unmistakable skyline of the Sawtooth Range along Minnesota’s north shore of Lake Superior provided a memorable sense of place. I purposefully wanted a short exposure time to freeze the water as well as the mallard ducks as they flew over the rocky point. It took about an hour of waiting to get the ducks in the right position and timed when the waves crashed into the shoreline, catching the day’s final rays of light.”
Equipment & Settings: Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EF 50mm f/1.8, 1/1250 sec., ISO 400, f/8.0.
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.
