18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Comet Neowise Shining Over Mirror Lake

We set out late at night and drove deep into the Uinta Mountain range in Northern Utah in hopes of capturing the comet in its purest form. It was a magical night that I will never forget. Sitting under the universe that usually appears pretty consistent, we were greeted by a comet from the distant stretches of our solar system. If you didn't see it in person, words won't describe the magnitude of the photograph.
