Our photo of the day looks like it came from another world.

As any photographer can tell you ... well, as anyone who has witnessed the glory of a sunset can tell you ... the glow of that big star sinking below the horizon can offer some of the planet's more surreal moments. This photo of a tule elk taken by Rick Derevan at California's Point Reyes National Seashore brings the point home. The crazy light mixed with the blur of bokeh makes for a super otherworldly shot, and reminds us of the wonders we have right here at home.
