Catch the wave and vote on tomorrow's Photo of the Day

ISAAC McCliskie-Miles's sunset image taken near the Wollongbar wreck at Byron Bay came in as runner-up in some tight voting from an exceptional range of images in Friday's Photo of the Day poll.

Isaac's picture picked up 20% of the vote, putting it 10 points behind Vanessa Clarke's winning image, which ran in Saturday's paper, and just ahead of a terrific sunrise photo taken at the East Ballina cemetery by Ripley W Cheadle-Gray.

Photo of the Day celebrates the beauty of the Northern Rivers and our region's photographic talent. As well as appearing here it is published on Page 2 of The Northern Star, is posted on our Facebook page. Ordinarily the Photo of the Day is used as the cover image of our Facebook page, but that will be suspended for the next little while as we take part in the important #handsoff campaign against street violence. You can help with the campaign by signing the petition and taking the #handsoff pledge.

To submit an image for Photo of the Day, go to our Facebook page and share it.

Now to tomorrow's photo. We have eight images to choose from today, including a few submissions from first-time Photo of the Day contributors - welcome!

Have a look at the poll below and pick your favourits. I'm happy to say an issue that was preventing voting on our mobile site has now been fixed, so happy voting!

You can see bigger versions of the images by clicking on them, or see full-sized versions in this gallery or by selecting the gallery link above the thumbnails. Poll closes at noon.
