18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cotton candy Idaho skies

Idaho offers incredible sunrises and sunsets. We enjoy 300+ sunshine days annually, because this is desert country. I've never seen a sky like this in over seven decades that beams a warm, deep pink glow into my house. I take an evening stroll as this glow continues to deepen. I feel moved to keep this image forever; snap multiple photos of the event. Nature is a soothing gift every day as is the gift to save it.
