15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A California Sunrise

This was taken on a beach just north of Santa Cruz, California. I was hiking with a photography workshop group, and this was one of the first shots I took that morning. Once I walked up to the top of the cliffs and saw this view, I knew it was perfect for a photograph.
