14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
A local man exploring the low river during a drought in Maine

I met a young man that wanted to have his photo taken, another local photographer friend and I took him along the river to get some basic head shots with the fall colors in full bloom so she could give me lessons in ISO. The photographer I was with suggested he explore the unusually low river and the roots along the river that are not normally exposed this time of year. This moment is the young man stretching and exploring his environment and getting used to the chilly water.
