    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.


    Policies

    *One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

    *Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the "+ (Multi-Quote) button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

    *SFW (Safe for Work) only - This is a site - wide rule. If you wouldn't show it in a public place, then it's NSFW (not safe for work). Think before you post.

    *Describe your photo - Tell what it is and where you took it. If you know the EXIF data of a photo, include it. The following EXIF fields are recommended: Camera, ISO, Focal Length, Shutter/Aperture and Lens.



    Note: Anyone may start the Photo of the Day thread on the first of the month GMT. Please copy a quote of this post to maintain all the formatting.


    ** To see all of our past POTD threads please see the sticky thread here**

    Cheers :)

    Took pictures of the cliff walkway at the hotel, it is now lit up at night and makes for some intimidating landscapes. Hope you like it. I am trying this one in B&W.

    I like this one too but maybe shutter could have benefitted from being a tad faster to reduce motion blur on the droplet in front of the flower head.

    Like it Ken - at first glance I thought it was some crumpled paper such is the amount of texture - only comment would be some(thing)(one) to give a bit of scale. The fence goes some way but a well-placed person at the top would be great.

    Another colourful sunset I'm afraid...Comments always appreciated.

    Yes, I agree. That one droplet bothered me, but difficult to clone out.

    Cheers :)

    Stunning as always! Gorgeous colours. On mine that is a good call but I was the only weirdo lurking around there at that time of night. Ha ha ha

    I'd repost the June one on here. It's a nice photo and it'd be a shame if it was ignored :)

    26376919440_58f1a4d6f3_o.jpg Old school Hess service station near my house, not many of these left. Only stocks 87 and 93 octane... and pay AFTER you pump. They take the credit card on Square iPads, and $0.50 ice cold Pepsi cans from their machine, good deal and great customer service!

    Wallpaper.jpg Late last year, wife and I bought a rather old house. Demolition permits are not far off, so ventured out today to get some shots. As you can see from the photo, it's a keeper (insert appropriate dose of sarcasm here!) Built in 1920, and thats probably the last time anything was done to it!

    More than nice enough I'd say! Like the people and palms on the shore for scale.

    Lovely atmospheric picture - can almost feel the balmy S Florida night air!
