14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunrise on the Flats

During the winter in North Florida at low tide the beautiful flats become visible revealing rippled sand and tidal pools. This dramatic sunrise was captured as a front of clouds came through with lines paralleling the sand. An unusual dock is present at the far left of the image, dwarfed by the power and beauty of nature.
