17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Regulated wildfires set by rangers to prevent uncontrolled burning through the Northern Serengeti created a misty view through which a small herd of elephants made its way, searching for clear air to breathe. Although the circumstances were unfortunate for the elephants, the image was haunting and worth capturing.
