15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Poppies and Clouds

Taken at the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, near Lancaster , CA. Every few years, after a rainy season, the poppies can have a beautiful bloom. After several years of drought, the conditions in 2017 were just right for a gorgeous display of color, as far as the eye can see.
