This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

On this day there were many rains. After a drencher I went out to the nearby forest in the late afternoon. The light was amazing in the forest.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? Even though the Photo of the Day runs quite large, detail shots often work well, especially when the mood is strong enough to draw me in. When I look at this photograph, I get the feeling of lying in the grass, seeing an abstraction of the world through a filter of sun and rain. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
