    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.

    Monument Valley

    A "view within a view" shot from my recent road trip through the US National Parks (and other sights).

    Possibly the most famous "western" landscape, it didn't disappoint :)

    Very nice shot. A first I was wondering what it was. :)

    State Masters titles - team pursuit::

    That guy was doing the turn, looking down at the others in his team and joining the back of the group.

    1/30sec, F/10, ISO2500 and 200mm.

    I can tell you very honestly that I hated taking these shots. Taking them meant that I wasn't on the track myself. Very, very frustrated. But that's what a crash does. The recovery time was a bit too long.

    Nice. I'm heading into London on business tomorrow so I'll be capturing the beauty of the Northern line!

    Mine for today is a little more rural.
