19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Aerial view of layered formations near Hanksville, Utah. Shot looking straight down as to capture the mesmerizing roadmap created by the hundreds of layers of sediment. I took this image just before sunrise to avoid the direct light, which would distract from the beauty and simplicity of the layers.
