WE had an exceptionally tight vote in yesterday's Photo of the Day poll, ending in a tied result with Steve Parmenter's blood moon and Cassidy Taylor's unusual picture of a bluebottle at Sharpes Beach.

As always in such situations, we broke out The Northern Star Coin to break the deadlock, which came down in favour of Steve's portent of doom.

Happily, we managed to get through the night without the Earth splitting open, although some of the same people prophesying the end of things are now saying it will all happen a little more slowly than that.

So, maybe the world will end and maybe it will just keep on spinning. Either way, we got a great pic out of it.

Thanks Steve.

Photo of the Day celebrates the beauty of the Northern Rivers and the talent of its people.

As well as appearing here it is published on Page 2 of the newspaper and is used as the cover image on our Facebook page.

To contribute to Photo of the Day, simply share a picture on our Facebook page or vote in our weekday poll.

If the Earth does unexpectedly split open, email the photo to news@northernstar.com.au. It'll probably go on the front page, depending on what else it happening at the time.

We have another great selection of images for you to choose from in today's poll.

Have a look at our poll and pick your favourite.

Voting closes at noon.
