Photo of the Day

Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge in Monroe, Louisiana

On the Bayou

“I was up before sunrise on a chilly January morning in Monroe, Louisiana,” writes Keith Yahl, who shared this picture with our Your Shot community. “I hoped to capture the changing light over the nearby Black Bayou Lake. There was a serenity in the early morning scene. I continued to capture the sunrise from different angles as it changed the colors around me from orange to blue.”
