Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Folly Beach Sunset” by Riddhish Chakraborty. Location: Folly Beach, South Carolina.

“I love Folly Beach,” says Chakraborty. “It’s the best place to watch both sunrise and beach activities. I wanted to capture the mood of the setting sun and the color of the sky over the water. The beach has dead driftwood that gets flooded during high tide. It makes a photographer’s landmark on the beach. Nature has been mesmerizing. I used an 8-stop ND to freeze the wave.”

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including AssignmentsGalleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, FacebookTwitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
