17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Coastal Fog

On the coast of Mt Desert Island August 7, 2019, a storm front was approaching and surrounded the barrier islands with sea fog. Sea fog is a living, changing being. Each moment shifts the shape of the clouds and with it the light that filters through them. Every shot I took was so unique, capturing a different part of the spectrum of light, all while wrapping the islands in soft blankets. The constant transformation was inspiring.
