Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Celestial Dawn” by Clayton Peoples. Location: Mono Lake South Tufa Area, California.
“With comet NEOWISE putting on a dazzling, once-in-a-lifetime show, I pondered where I could photograph it with clear skies, no human-made lights and water,” says Peoples. “I decided on Mono Lake with its moonlit tufa providing a surreal, ‘otherworldly’ atmosphere. I pulled an all-nighter to drive there and get this shot, but it was totally worth it! An added bonus is that despite a few waves/ripples on the water, the long exposure smoothed the surface and allowed for reflections.”
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.
