14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Golden Hour Weather over the Atlantic ~ Southern Outer Banks

One of my favorite things to do is to walk along the beach or any pathway really that's surrounded by nature, with my camera slung over my shoulder. And my favorite time is during golden hour. At this point, I was walking along at pretty much the same pace with several dolphins, who were swimming along and playing not far offshore. I was so absorbed by watching them, looking up and seeing this beautiful sky caught me completely by surprise. I quickly snapped several shots. My only hope was that my camera would be able to capture the unbelievable dramatic colors.
