Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Golden Swath of Light” by Laurel Galloway

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day by Laurel Galloway features a patch of golden yellow light dramatically illuminating the rugged mountainside.

“We were leaving a shoot we had done in Malign Lake, Jasper National Park, Canada (June, 2014) and we saw what remained of the last light on the mountain at the end of a stormy day. It was breathtaking,” writes Galloway.

This image was captured with a Nikon D700, ISO 200, 50mm lens, f/3.5, 1/80 sec.
