20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
On The Bayou

I captured this image on a cold November morning in the Atchafalaya Basin near New Iberia, Louisiana. I was photographing the cypress swamps during fall foliage and took this shot handheld from a kayak at first light as the fog was burning off.
