Photo By Bill Sisson Today’s Photo of the Day is “Secret Beach” by Bill Sisson. Location: Oregon. “Secret Beach in Oregon is not secret, but it’s not easy to find,” explains Sisson. “A short, steep hike down to this beach brings you to one of the prettiest places on the Oregon coast. I have been here at various times of day and night, trying to photograph the scene with different light and compositions. And I have been dissatisfied with most of the images because of the lighting and composition.

This pond didn’t look like much from the road where I saw it, but I figured it was worth exploring a bit more up close. As it turned out, with a little help from my circular polarizer to control how the reflection appeared in the water, I was able to get several images from this little pond that have ended up in calendars and have been very successful prints. While every season has something unique to offer nature photographers, fall has to be the absolute best time of year for landscape images. The brightly colored leaves, increased chances of dramatic weather and, in some parts of the country, the chance of an early snowstorm that puts a white dusting on trees...Photo of fall foliage taken in the shade.
