15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Mirrored sunset

Observing the mirror image of a sunset over glassy, still water is perhaps one of the most peaceful moments of a day. I was strolling along a mile long raised boardwalk through a nature area with my toddler son as the orange & purple sky mixed together like a watercolor painting. Dusk is so still there wasn't a whisper of a breeze to disrupt the water with even the tiniest ripple - leaving me with a picture I couldn't pass up.
