Photo By Clayton Peoples

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Heaven on Earth” by Clayton Peoples. Location: Kings Canyon National Park, California.

“I hiked into Kings Canyon National Park from the east side for the first time this past summer,” explains Peoples. “I knew that there were lakes below Kearsarge Pass, so I was hoping to get some reflections. Unfortunately, when I reached the lakes, the winds were just strong enough that most of the lakes had ripples, and, thus, no reflections. But I noticed that there was a wind-sheltered outlet between the first and second lakes where the water was reliably calm. So, I navigated toward that area—crossing a creek in the process—and balanced on some rocks in the water to get this image. I got my reflections after all—and got some interesting foreground objects in the frame as well.”

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.
