12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
An Alaskan Sunset

The last fishing trawler slid slowly into the port of Ketchikan Alaska. The sky was an incredible shade of orange and white and everything was silhouetted by the setting sun. I had been taking pictures of buildings bathed in the golden light but when I saw the silhouetted fishing trawler dwarfed by the hillside, I had to take the picture.
