Today's Photo Of The Day was submitted to the OP Your Favorite Places gallery. Jeff Zimmerman took the photo near Asheville, North Carolina. The photograph is beautifully timed to catch the warm glow in the clouds while still the mist in the valleys below is only indirectly lit. In a few more minutes this scene would have transformed into a much more flat and less interesting one.
I select a Photo Of The Day every day. I choose the images from the various OP galleries including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print and I select a weekly winner to be featured on the OP home page. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.
