16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A magnificent lake sunset to experience while driving through upstate New York

Lake sunsets like this one inspire my drive. I sometimes take long drives to nowhere- it really is the journey that matters. You could say I'm a sunset hunter. I've always said the real sunset is the magnificent colors after the sun slips below the horizon. Often, along the way to nowhere, and sometimes off roads less traveled, I come across scenes that definitely take me somewhere.
