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.


*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.

Moved to the correct month...

At the retreat I went to last week, they are establishing a permaculture garden and orchard. This truck has been positioned so that produce can be put on the back of it and shared with the local community. I couldn't resist getting a shot of it when I got up for some sunrise photography one morning, but was greeted with no colour in the sky and solid grey clouds. :(

OOPS. I put this in October's POD by mistake so forgive the double post in one day:

This was taken 12 minutes after the image I posted yesterday with the alpenglow on the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Now the tufa formations are lit up with the sun clearing the mountains to the east. Amazing what a difference 12 minutes can make
