17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Parked on the side of the road

While flying and photographing over Northern Botswana, my engine quit and I had to make a crash landing on a remote and very uneven dirt road - the only place available for an emergency landing. Upon landing, my left wing hit some trees and the plane spun 180 degrees. Both my friend and I walked away with no injuries.
