16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Southwestern Icelandic landscape while driving Ring Road

I took a trip to Iceland to immerse myself in nature. I toured a glacier, an ice cave, and a volcano. As I was driving to depart the island, I saw the low-hanging summertime sun in the sky across the vast frontier. In that moment, I experienced an awe sense of our planet's size and place in space.
