13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Impure Photography

This photo was taken in an area were chemical pollution was found due to fertilizer runoff in the water ways. High levels of Phosphates and Nitrates have been altering the ecosystem for several years now. This represents sustainable travel, because it reminds people that even some of the most beautiful locations are being hurt by pollution, and not all of the results are obvious to the naked eye.
