Nelson Landry's striking photo was submitted to the Extreme Telephoto Assignment. "As I was leaving the lake near my home," he writes, "I looked back into the rising sun and spotted this silhouetted image. The wildlife and foliage at the lake offers new views during the changing seasons." Landry used a Tokina 400mm lens on his Nikon camera. He took the photograph near Spanish Lake, Louisiana. The Extreme Telephoto Assignment is open for submission through tonight at midnight.
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.
