19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mystery Place

Living in a metropolis, I was so tired of noise, people, ... I wanted to break out of this eternal movement. Inspired by the beautiful photographs of Michael Kenna and Don Hong-Oai, I went looking for an island of tranquility and found it among the trees by the lake. This meditative place is suggestive and some subtle thoughts that would not be heard in the crowd. I tried to convey this feeling of calmness, silence, immersion in the inner world through the discovery of the outer world.
