Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Scorched” by Stuart Gordon. Location: Santiam Pass, Cascade Range, Oregon.
“Devastating forest fires that swept through this part of the Oregon Cascade Range more than a decade ago left behind a landscape of eerie beauty when these snags of fir, pines, cedars and hemlock are isolated in an abstract close-up against snow-covered mountain terrain,” says Gordon. “In black and white, particularly, the landscape took on the feel of a Japanese pen-and-ink drawing.”
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.
