Kevin Pickens submitted this photograph from Yellowstone National Park to the Waterfalls Assignment which is open until 7/25/2012. When you combine sunrise with atmospherics like mist or steam in this case, you can create a stunning photograph. The low angle of the sunlight made these surreal colors possible and the steam from the hot springs sort of amplifies the effect.
I select a Photo Of The Day everyday. Images come from the OP Galleries like Your Favorite Places, Assignments and the contest galleries. You can see more of my Photo Of The Day selections on the OP Blog.
