17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Living on The Edge

This image shows the beginning of an incredible night at the Fortaleza Canyon lookout in Cambará do Sul/Brazil. I got ICMBIO's permission to spend the night there and make unpublished night shots of the largest canyons in Latin America. Canion Fortaleza is 7.5 km long and has walls that reach 900 meters high. This was the first time anyone had recorded the Milky Way cloud over this incredible monument of nature.
