13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
2nd Beach Sunrise

As the moon sets, the sun rises and the tide recedes. Countless is the number of times I’ve been to this place. And every time I come here it is completely different than the time before. On this early morning, almost pre-dawn, stunning conditions existed as the morning fog had begun to lift, the rain had stopped, and the first light of day reached out and brushed the clouds - gently awaking the day at hand.
