16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Heaven & Earth

This photo was captured at the Grand Canyon. I converted in to B&W and wanted the viewer to experience an exact balance between the cloudy sky and the richly textured earth. Together they create a wonderful masterpiece. The peaks and valleys, the dark and the light... I can see the experience of life itself in this image.
