15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Crescent Beach Trail

My sweetie and I took a week long trip to Oregon and it rained everyday. This was the first day we had no rain so we decided to hike down to the beach. At this very moment the sun started to make it's appearance in the foggy woods. It was magical and it only lasted for 10 minutes. I took multiple images to figure out how to meter the light in there and then waited for him to keep walking to capture this moment. Once we got down to the beach, my sweetie asked for my hand in marriage!
