17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Edge of the World, Saudi Arabia

There is a famous spot outside of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia that overlooks a vast desert oasis called, "The Edge of the World." We almost did not make it. It was stormy and there was a sand storm on our way there. However these aspects combined made the place empty and the sky full of drama. I have taken a series of photographs using landscape and people before and it continues to fascinate me how humans interact and are a part of our landscapes.
