15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Hat's Off

Traveled to White Sands, New Mexico trying to get the perfect shot. The clouds were great. Was very windy, which made the sand look untracked. Was concentrating on the shot, and my friend said my hat had blown off. I did not notice, but when I reviewed the shot, there was my hat, hovering off the ground like a space ship.
