13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunrise In Badlands National Park

Starting your hike with a sunrise is always my favorite. The light can be amazing and wildlife is more active. The clouds were coming in after a clear starry night. I wanted to capture the dramatic difference in the sky as well as the grass that was matted down by a late snow fall the week before.
