18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Finding Shelter

On our hike to Big Pines Lake in California, we were suddenly hit by a huge snowstorm. We made the decision to turn back around for safety reasons. As we made our way back, we noticed some cabins buried below the snow. We wanted to stage a photo of my friend "looking for shelter" in this blizzard.
