17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Frostbite

This is probably one of my favorite images to date. I am serial observer. Whether I am in nature or surrounded by urban atmosphere, I am always on the look out for textures, colors, and patterns that I can "sample" with my camera. This photo appeared in the early spring as frost on my window at home. The sun was just beginning to come up, and I knew that soon this texture would be gone. I love capturing the natural shapes and patterns found in the details of nature, and this one is one of my best.
