This Month in Photo of the Day: 2012 National Geographic Photo Contest Images

During a heavy downpour in Florence, Italy, water enhances the aged character of a road, highlighting an array of monochromatic textures. The transient, colorful umbrellas pass through the scene, all uniting and forming a striking image. Two of them unite, suggesting a closer connection, in colorful, romantic Florence.
