19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Taken during a misty morning, just after a storm had passed in the lesser-known (and more wild) Dolomites near Belluno. While the clouds started clearing, and before the bright sun took over the scene, a mystical moment presented itself in the distance, in which everything found its balance: life and death, light and darkness, hope and despair.
