15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Movement Beyond the Four Corners of Film

Often, people live with the misconception that they must travel far to find beauty. A nearby water reservoir provided the opportunity to prove them wrong. This capture also requires us to reevaluate the idea/definition of a photograph -- it's not simply a capture of a moment in time, but the captured life can lift from the film and truly live on if you allow it to.
