16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Late Summer Lens Flare

To capture this image I ventured down to the Belmont Prairie that is a one-block walk from my house. I go there often to find my center and take photographs of nature after a hectic day of work. The thing that struck me most about this moment was the angle of the sun and the amount of lens flare.
