Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Sunrise in Midst of a Storm” by Melissa Machonis

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day by Melissa Machonis is a beautiful image of rolling, storm tossed waves striking the beach.

“This shot was taken in Stuart, FL just before the sun was about to rise and a huge rain storm was just ending,” writes Machonis.

This image was captured with a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR and Canon 17-40mm lens.

See a larger version of the photo in the Shutterbug Photo of the Day gallery here.
