15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Boy and his Stars

This photo communicates both significance and insignificance of our fleeting lives. I was alone the night this photo was taken. My first take was with just the Milky-way. I felt the photo was missing something that the moment had. In standing in awe of the Milkyway significance was captured.
