Photo of the Day (10/15/2006)

The Sierra Nevadas are one of the most photogenic mountain ranges in the world. While the Himlayas definitely get their share of attention…their scale is truly amazing…the Sierras provide a mix of barren crags, towering pines and mirror-surfaced lakes. And when the light falls just right like it does in this superb photo of Mt. Spencer by Misha Logvinov, well, then you have the makings of a Photo of the Day. This photo, need I remind you, came from the gadling pool, to which anyone can contribute and from which we select our much coveted (OK, maybe no that much) POTD.
