16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
In Search of Silence - Birch Trees in Winter

I try to capture silent moments. I see my work as a counterpoint to the human-made noise. There are still silent places far from the hustle and bustle. But they are getting rare. To locate such places is one thing; to be there at the right time is much more difficult. How would the world be today if we all were a little quieter?
