Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Mirror Pool Sunrise” by David Shield. Location: Sedona, Arizona.

“It took several attempts to get this shot, waiting for all the elements to come together; or at least as close as possible,” explains Shield. “After a considerable amount of rainfall, I hiked to this spot at sunrise for three mornings in a row. On the third morning, the wind was completely calm, and sunrise produced some pleasing light. I wanted to capture a different perspective than the usual composition shot here, so I set up in the middle of two of the pools, lowering my tripod to where the head was about six inches above the ground.

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including AssignmentsGalleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, FacebookTwitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
