17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Five Senses

I want the viewers to have not only just a visual treat, but also an image that exalts all the other senses, conveying the very essence of the place at the time! I want the viewers to hear the sounds of pelicans and geese along with the sounds of streaming river water…I want the viewers to smell and taste the sulphur laden pungent air, emanating from the geyser springs…I want the viewers to feel the cold mist touching one’s body.
