Nine Months of Ocean Picture Of the Day


As May 2010 comes to a close, The Ocean Project's Ocean Picture Of the Day service received its 270th contribution from ocean-loving citizens of the world. Contributions have come in from all continents including Antarctica. You can view a new picture every day at theoceanproject.org/opod, choose the prev link to access the archives, change the archive date in the address to see back to any day since September 1, 2009, or best yet, make your own contribution using the OPOD submission form.

Get out your cameras as you celebrate the ocean on or around World Oceans Day on June 8th. Feel one with the ocean. Then, submit a photo and let the world know about it. We'll be waiting to praise your contribution as an OPOD in the months ahead.
