17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Sahara walks

I took this photograph on my first trip to the Sahara desert. I was completely mesmerized by the texture of the sand; it was like something I have never felt before. It was so delicate, bright, and beautiful. When I walked, it seemed that the weight of my foot was blowing the sand away as if it were an explosion.
