15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunset on the Chesapeake Bay in Selbyville, DE

Sometimes the best stories need no words...We were having our annual family reunion over July 4th weekend. Everybody was in the middle of conversing and enjoying dinner. I happened to look outside and saw this amazing sunset. Mother Nature had me tongue tied. Without saying a word, I got up from the dinner table and dashed outside to see what I could capture as I couldn’t believe my eyes. I wanted that moment of beauty to last forever...
