20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Godzilla clouds in the Florida Keys

We were vacationing in Marathon, Florida. While there, I received a call my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. I walked out to watch the sun rise and the image of Godzilla appeared in the clouds. My sister told me she was prepared to fight, and this image in the clouds brought hope and peace for me in that moment. It was very special.
