16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
An escape from humanity and finding that they had already been there.

Surprises in Nature. I was photographing beach scenes in Stone Harbor, NJ in early spring and came across an unnatural element amidst a very natural beach scene. I was photographing a series of skies, dunes,fence and beach compositions finding a spoiler in the form of a metal chair. I made it the focal point of the composition. Sometimes life interferes with art.
