Photo of the Day

A bare tree against a colorful background at Arches National
June 19, 2011

Tree, Arches National Park

This Month in Photo of the Day: Traveler Contest Images Was photographing one of the arches in Arches National Park when this tree caught my eye. It was an overcast evening, and I set up and waited for a break in the clouds for a few rays of sun. (This photo and caption were submitted to the 2011 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.)
