15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Flower at White Sands

This photograph was taken during my first visit to White Sands, NM. I was enjoying the plants and animal tracks, when I slipped and fell. I did not realize until I took this photo that I had gotten sand in my shutter mechanism so it would not open properly. But the resulting photograph was beautiful!
