16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

One of the best things about photographing nature is to witness unique moments that most people miss. One of these is usually the dawn of a new day. I find that there is a beauty that borders on magic when the darkness of night opens the path to the light, the stars leave the scene and the warm colors invade the clouds and the sky In the photograph we see a foggy sunrise over Gentau lake, in the French Pyrenees. In its waters, between rocks and clouds, stands the top of the Midi d'Ossau.
