    It's July on the International Dateline.


    Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

    Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

    Red-tailed Hawk

    Putting aside all of the speculation of Aperture/will-they-won't-they for the quiet of a majestic bird.

    Shop assistant in The Gap had a pretty unique look. He commented on my camera looking cool (Fuji X100) so I took a quick snap of him. Horrible light in there and I forgot I had it on spot metering. Nevertheless I liked how he looked.

    What a visually intriguing photo. Well done!

    Another great Milky Way shot. I have been trying to do something like this but something always seems to get in the way.

    Velcro'd the ultrapod to the seat post of my bike. Remote release.
    I initially thought my leg ruined the picture, but in retrospect I think it adds a bit of authenticity. /excuse

    Photo of the Day: July 2014

    Went to Brighton for the day today with Mrs MacRy and Bob the dog. The weather was beautiful but not great for photography as it was brilliant midday sun. Caught this guy doing his stuff as I walked by and quite liked it. Didn't get many keepers today though unfortunately. I'm obviously more used to the gloom of the subway ;)

    Red-tailed Hawk with an escort of Common Grackles

    You often see monster-sized birds of prey being mobbed by smaller birds (for obvious reasons). This Red-tailed Hawk was being escorted off the premises by not only these Grackles but also a flock of Red-winged Blackbirds.

    I like the composition and framing. What was your focal point as i can't find anything specific in focus?

    Thanks. I believe it was about a third of the way in (so in the water). It was the first time the garden by the house was relatively empty so I was pleased to get some shots in.

    Nice job.

    Mine for today is a stalking beach shot for a change. Like Golem I've emerged from my underground caves.

    Someone should have a word with this fella. I think he may be guilty of something.....

    He might be guilty? Stalking and taking photos on the beach is gonna get you in a lot of trouble!:D

    I was out trying to get some lightning shots.. (I got a few, but none that I am crazy about) but I did like this long exposure of a car on it's way..
