15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A lone bare tree, silhouetting it shape, against the background of shimmering water and a colorful sunset.

“Serenity” Capturing the light, and the shadows it creates, is everything! As a nature photographer, it is always the light and shadows, playing within the colors that I remember most about any location. Each of these elements helps to create my inspiration for the final presentation of my image. Utilization of their elusive qualities is what creates the underlying emotion for the viewer to experience in just a matter of seconds. I strive to convey that sense of emotion by capturing its fleeting magic.
