17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Early Morning...

This is a wonderful scene of a leafless tree on a small bank in Lake Yellowstone. It was early morning and the weather predicted less clouds, which made me hope for a beautiful sunrise. But the clouds rolled in and sunrise became impossible. I drove along the lake, 40 minutes before dawn, until I saw an opening to the lake. I decided to stop and discovered this scene! I instantly fell in love with it. But this scene came alove with this duck.
