This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel and Culture Photos

An amazing view of the sun setting behind the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountain front range in Boulder CO. I caught this spectacular fireshow on the roof of the stadium, using five different exposures in a tone mapping technique similar to the one Ansel Adams developed to capture scenes with high dynamic range.

This photo and caption were submitted to the 2008 International Photography Contest. See photo galleries and play jigsaw puzzles of images from more than 105,000 submissions.
