15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Grand Teton Reflection

After a late night photographing the stars, I nearly had to drag myself out of my sleeping bag. A nice gentleman camping next to me offered me a hot cup of coffee as he saw me packing up for sunrise shots at 5 am. I made my way down to this location, and waited with a few other photographers for the sun to rise and immediately I was happy about my decision to get up. I have never seen a more majestic mountaintop sunrise.
