Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Foggy Sunrise” by Scott E. Zimmerman

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day is a dreamy, golden sunrise by Scott E. Zimmerman. It was shot in the Big Island Wildlife Area in Ohio.

“One of my favorite spots, not only for sunrise and sunset photos, but for wildlife as well, Big Island Wildlife Area never disappoints,” Zimmerman writes. “Fog contributed to a strong orange glow all around, as well as emphasized the sun's rays coming through the reeds.”

He captured it with a Canon 70D DSLR at 55mm, 1/25 second (to preserve the ripples on the pond), f/29, ISO 100, exp -0.3 (to keep from blowing out the sun).
