17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Glowing mountains

The photo shows Moraine Lake and its surrounding mountains at sunrise. When the mountain peaks suddenly were bathed in orange sunlight, all the conversations around me stopped and the only thing that could be heard were the camera clicks and twittering of birds. It was just a short moment of enjoyment because clouds were already pulling in and began to hide the view.
