16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Light of the World

This photograph shows a sunset following a thunderstorm in the Roan Highlands of North Carolina. This was my fourth attempt at this photograph over a period of two years. Each previous attempt, there were either too few clouds (there were no clouds at all the first two times) or too many clouds.
