19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mt. Tamalpais: Dancing Above the Clouds

This picture was taken on top of Mt. Tamalpais, when I gathered with a few friends to watch the sunset. On the drive up the mountain, it was rainy with a dense fog so we thought it would be a total washout. Surprisingly, we arrived to a magnificent sunset above the clouds and experienced one of the most majestic sunsets of the year. This shot captures two women below us listening to celtic music and dancing above the clouds.
